The photo was taken by John’s amazing lighting designer Joe Levasseur. Everything they have used to assemble the beautiful and crazy set are found items - who knew clothes hangers could be so breath-taking. Jasperse is one of America’s leading experimental choreographers, and he and his company have been here for the last week finishing this show as part of a commissioned residency by On the Boards. It says a lot about Seattle that artists from outside our community are excited to finish and premiere new work here – the following week Jasperse and company will take the show back home to NY - to the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s Next Wave Festival.
