JPMW is a San Francisco based dance organization committed to fostering the vitality of dance through collaboration, support for other artists, and collective community engagement. With attention to process, form, and nuance, JPMW creates and presents dance and dance happenings that affirm the meaningful state of our subtle, fragile bodies in relationship to place, phenomena, and the present moment. We use improvisational and authentic movement practices as investigative methods towards sensation pleasure, and the experience of seeing and being seen. These collaborative, real-time practices dissolve potential hierarchical structures of artistic process, as well as habitual learned movement patterns, and engage the work instead in an ongoing conversation with the body as memory, culture, and place. We are curious about transferring the raw and spontaneous experience of process into performance, and in the artistic activation of shared space as a form of solidarity, and collective care.
