Decidedly Jazz Danceworks’ Drive-In Show Is an Innovative Pandemic Performance

There is something in the details closes tonight By Jenna Shummoogum

Decidedly Jazz Danceworks’ There is something in the details takes place through the windows of the company’s building. Music and voice-overs stream through a radio frequency that you can access in your car. Every vehicle is parked on an angle so that each cohort can have the best sightlines, and instead of applause, people honk their horns in appreciation. This is pandemic performance.

Insatiable and Inspired

By Cindy Ansah

How would you illustrate the life of a so-called musical madman – one with a successful musical career that spanned more than three decades but who was plagued with bouts of mental illness? Decidedly Jazz Danceworks (DJD) did so with music, movement and a little madness.

A Night at the Juke Joint

The latest from Holla Jazz By Valeria Nunziato

Under the artistic direction of Natasha Powell, Floor’d was a fresh spin on vernacular jazz – a journey to another era, complete with live jazz music that has spectators dancing along in their seats. From the strike of the first saxophone to the last dim of the lights, we were offered much more than a show: the audience was given an experience.
