blue, sable, and burning

At Camargo, she developed sound-scapes for her body of work, including a solo titled blue, sable, and burning, a dance piece that was shared internationally. This piece listens and responds to memories of home, travel, and water. Returning to imagery from an ongoing collaboration with visual artist Jennifer Meridian, Jasmine intended for this to be a map of where "the sablevenus" has been, and to also be a response to Robin Coste Lewis's poem The Voyage of the Sable Venus. Jasmine also intended to investigate sound and movement for an upcoming premiere of a new work, shook.

Jasmine was in residence at the Camargo Foundation from September 1 to 30, with support provided by Jerome Foundation and Movement Research.
