The latest dance work in jumatatu m. poe and Jermone “Donte” Beacham’s Let ‘im Move You series, This is a Formation draws from J-Sette, a dance form with origins in southern drill teams, made popular in the gay African American club scene. The work-in-progress performance offers a window into the creative team’s research, development, and production conducted during a residency at Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center in New York.

A culminating performance for Let ‘im Move You: This is a Formation takes place on February 8 and 9 at the Painted Bride Art Center in Philadelphia.
