A lot of theoretical language weighs down the announcement of Within between, the latest work from this consummate artist with a perpetual twinkle in his eye. John Jasperse claims to be working toward “a utopian ideal that exists in the ephemeral nature of doing,” by experimenting with four seasoned dancers and three musicians playing an original score by Jonathan Bepler. Jasperse seeks “to both embrace and resist the habits of his own history,” which, lucky for us, is a 30-year international journey through a broad cultural landscape, one that yields responses marked with wit and startling beauty. Join him on the ride; you’ll be glad you did.
