River/Body is a water dance that expresses the intense and immediate ways that our bodies and the body of the river are connected. According to Ms. Josa-Jones, “We are water bodies living on a water planet. River/Body is about awakening the sensual, compassionate heart of that relationship.” River/Body is conceived and choreographed by Paula Josa-Jones, working in collaboration with performers Evangeline Johns, Aislinn MacMaster, Dillon Paul, DeAnna Pellecchia and Amy Wynn. Filmmaker Ben Willis, in collaboration with students from The Marvelwood School, are creating a documentary about the background, development and performance of River/Body.

River/Body is supported by and created in collaboration with the following:
The Martha Boschen Porter Fund, Berkshire Taconic Foundation, Housatonic Heritage, Northwest Connecticut Arts Council, the Housatonic Valley Association and generous private donors.

Paula Josa-Jones/Performance Works

Since 1985, Paula Josa-Jones/Performance Works has been making risk-taking, adventurous dance theater that explores the borders between states of being, including gender, species, past/present, movement/stillness, light/dark. The dancers, designers and I create works that are visually rich, provocative and grounded in deep diving movement exploration. We are committed to collaborations with artists in all disciplines, and to fostering relationships with an international creative community.

It is our intention to be generous and wild in our work and to, in the words of writer Maria Popova, "seek out and share what magnifies our spirit."
