Jennifer Sims HeadshotARTIST STATEMENT

Honestly, I’m endlessly fascinated with how movement doesn’t lie, how movement can say what words cannot, and letting people observe what we don’t know we reveal about ourselves.

Like many, I’m not interested in how people move, I’m interested in what moves them. I prefer to move dance away from being a culture of entitled charity accessed by ticket prices to a means of priceless quotidian communication for any passerby. With this piece, ‘The Dress’, I mostly want viewers to question how they identify their own personal experiences of things they would never admit to others, or even their selves, with what they experience with these dancers in the space. I also hope viewers question how they feel about allowing movement to let them reveal their own story.
