Holiday Craft Fair

It's beginning to look a lot like a Holiday Craft Fair! Over twenty members of the Amherst College community will be showing their artisan crafts just in time for the gift giving season. Come warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and goodies while you browse one-of-a-kind art made by Amherst staff and associates. This event is hosted by the Employee Council.

J-Sette Performance Workshop with Jumatatu Poe

4:30 pm - 6:30 pm Webster Hall, Studio 1 (Room 117)

Guest artist Jumatatu Poe joins the Department of Theater and Dance to present BIG BODY: Experimental J-Sette Performance Workshop.

J-Sette, also known as Bucking, is a performance style popular in the Southern United States, practiced widely among majorettes and drill teams at historically Black colleges and universities, and also among teams of primarily queer men who compete at gay clubs and pride festivals. The workshop focuses on bombastic performance energy, complex relationships to rhythm and music, movement precision, group dynamics, and discovering joy in flesh and community. Participants will explore how the performance of J-Sette creates expectations around attention and accountability to a community, and how it positions leadership.

Jumatatu Poe is a choreographer and performer based between Philadelphia and NYC. He produces dance and performance work with idiosynCrazy productions, a company he founded in 2008 and now co-directs with Shannon Murphy.

All bodies are encouraged to participate, regardless of previous training or ability.
