Since January 2021, Jenny has been working on a series of dances inspired by her lived experience and the experiences of those in her community in response to isolation, grief and loss. Through film and movement, this event will ask you to reflect on the questions that fueled the creation of a new work in this series: What does it mean to belong to a person, to a place, to yourself? In a time where many people are navigating place, space and increased screen time, experience the joy of dance as a way to be closer to ourselves and others.

Public Kitchen + Dance Court

Hosted in collaboration with the Design Studio for Social Intervention, Stiggity Stackz Worldwide and Comfort Kitchen

The Dance Court and Public Kitchen serve as installations designed to help us reimagine, experiment and realize the ways in which public infrastructures can improve the quality of our lives. We have room to imagine the futures we want to create! Doing this takes experimentation and creativity. To spark this, we invite you to experience the Dance Court and Public Kitchen as “productive fictions" in Mary Hannon Park* in Roxbury, over the course of two consecutive weekends.

A new interactive installation active at the Museum of Science. The artwork is a part of an exhibition by MOS called 'Exploring AI: Making the Invisible Visible’, featuring cutting-edge technologies and projects utilizing AI technologies. Masary Studios trained a neural network on footage of over 3 million images of Boston-area dancers. The artwork generates images similar to its training data from input it has never seen before — 𝘆𝗼𝘂.

Opens September 27 at the Museum of Science Boston

Bates Dance Festival 2022

The Bates Dance Festival brings together an international community of choreographers, performers, educators & students in a cooperative community to study, perform & create new work. Jenny taught a daily 2.5hr Horton-based modern dance and creative process class during the 40th year anniversary of the festival.


Sparked by the struggles of indigenous people at Standing Rock and the struggle for clean water in Flint, Michigan, this project uses movement, light, and sculptural elements to create a visceral experience of empathy and hope.
