About: Jupiter

(big feelings) (inner space) (shining skin)

how to build a sequence of something?

revel in amplified time // out-of-this-world

In Jupiter, Gabrielle Civil transmits intimacy through virtual space, mining the possibilities of on-line performance. Premiered at the 2021 Salt Lake City Performance Art Festival, this live stream performance incorporates movement, black feminist bibliomancy and speculation along with close-ups, screen shares, and interactive chats. Get ready to get astral. All welcome.

An immersive month of in-person and online movement intensives and classes with exceptional local and national faculty + events and pop-up performances.

For the past 27 years, the Seattle Festival of Dance Improvisation (originally founded by Dance Art Group) has been a yearly convening of leading movement practitioners. This year we’re combining Strictly Seattle and SFDI into a full month of classes and intensives, socially distanced dance events and performances, and other online and in-person experiences. Register for individual classes and intensives to build your own schedule, or sign up for a range of digital, hybrid, or in-person festival passes to experience it all.
