Let ‘im Move You: This Is a Formation is the latest dance performance project in jumatatu m. poe and Jermone Donte Beacham’s Let ‘im Move You series, a collection of performance and visual works centered around the artists’ explorations with the J-Sette form.  

In Formation, seven Black dancers, a DJ, and a lighting designer perform alongside audiences, as they move together through the performance space with relative freedom. Live-captured video design focuses on hyper-close-up captures of the performers for display on hanging panels throughout the space.

The performances coincide with a series of Queer Slow Jam Parties, which are more reclaimed space than throwback. Transform memories of closeted high school dances into a new space of queer acceptance and enthusiasm. Accompanied by DJ Zen Jefferson, choreographers and performers alike rewrite their histories with these unapologetically-intimate and rhythmic partnered dances.
