Workshop and Performance
Visiting dancer and performance artist Jerron Herman will conduct a workshop and showing of his current project, Phys Ed. Jerron is an interdisciplinary artist and principal member of Heidi Latsky Dance. He’s been featured at Lincoln Center, ADF, the Whitney Museum, and abroad in Athens. Jerron now serves on the board of trustees at Dance/USA. He has shot for Tommy Hilfiger Adaptive, consulted for a Nike-sponsored project, and was profiled in Great Big Story. In 2018, Jerron was a Snug Harbor PASS artist, a finalist for the inaugural Apothetae/Lark Play Development Lab Fellowship and was nominated for a Fellowship in Dance from United States Artists. Jerron studied at Tisch School of the Arts and graduated from The King’s College. The New York Times has called him, "...the inexhaustible Mr. Herman." In this workshop, states Jerron, "our collective social rite as adolescents is challenged and exploded from a disabled lens. Taking the station of the jumping jack, the push up, and the overall quality of exhaustion, harsh "physicality" is transformed to be lyrical, beautiful, dare we say, fun?" In the workshop and performance setting, Jerron and participants will recreate the P.E. world via created movement and discourse, digging into what makes/made P.E. so central to our collective experience. The workshop takes place at 3:30 and is open to everyone (no dance background required). And the informal showing of Jerron's work will take place at 4:30 with a Q&A to follow.
