We are excited to announce that Samba Jig founders Pablo Regis and Kate Spanos are involved in a project that has been awarded a 2019-2020 NextLOOK residency at Joe’s Movement Emporium in partnership with The Clarice. With dance artist Sinclair Ogaga Emoghene, we will be creating a new work exploring performances of “Otherness” through the music and dance traditions of Nigeria and Brazil. Our residency will culminate with a performance on Friday, May 8, 2020. Mark your calendars now!
NextLOOK supports the development of new music, plays, dance and other experiences by regionally-based performing artists. Artists are mentored by seasoned arts administrators from The Clarice and Joe’s Movement Emporium to construct innovative methods of deepening the audience’s involvement in their creative process. By removing logistical barriers of cost and space, and providing a sounding board for artists creating new work, NextLOOK invests in the regional arts ecology and creates an accessible, exploratory environment that connects intriguing artists with adventurous audiences.
