jumatatu m. poe will present “transitions into terrestrial,” sharing images, video, poetics, and movement reflecting on transitions in artmaking and life. Having completed a 10 plus year cycle of research and performance with collaborator Jermone Donte Beacham through the J-Sette focused Let ‘im Move You series, jumatatu is reflecting on the vastness of the voyage, the depth of the lessons on both being, and being with, that sprang forth from that intimately collaborative series of processes. jumatatu will engage with the history of transformation within the development and performances of the Let ‘im Move You works, and how jumatatu and collaborators addressed the fragility of involving the unpredictable “outside” in this performance journey. Currently, jumatatu’s attention is turning toward the archival process of the Let ‘im Move You works, and investigating nobility and indigeneity in early research for the forthcoming terrestrial project.
