They are a recent graduate of The New England School of Art & Design where they concentrated in sculpture, performance, printmaking and philosophy. Their work has been exhibited in several venues and pop-up shows in the Boston area including “Blue”, an upcoming exhibition with the Cambridge Artist Association, and internationally in “TRANSEND.T: A Queer Themed Screen Exhibition” in Porto, Portugal and “Millionaires Can Be Trans*//You Are So Brave*” in Berlin, Germany.

Jamezie is one of the recipients of The International Sculpture Center’s 2015 Outstanding Student Achievement in Contemporary Sculpture Award, and participated in residency with The Icelandic Printmakers Association in Reykjavik, Iceland.

They frequently collaborated with community collectives to organize and teach accessible art making workshops that encourage radical minded action for events including The Boston Anarchist Bookfair, Boston Zine Fest, and The Theater Offensive. In their free time Jamezie rides bikes, does witchcraft, writes zines about mental health, radical sobriety and gender issues, wears cute dresses.

New Works in Performance

The Amherst College Department of Theater and Dance presents New Works in Performance, an evening of original works created by Amherst and Five College students.

Performance Project will feature new works created in the "Performance Studio" course in collaboration with "Lighting Design" and "Costume Design," created by Cara Board of Mount Holyoke College and Marina Dumont, Matthew Holliday '19 and MacKenzie Kugel '19 of Amherst College.

The Lens is a world premiere, created by the newly founded Amherst College Dance Ensemble and Visiting Artist Danté Brown, that depicts the aftermath of revolting community. In this collaborative process, we question how identity through performance can become an applicable commodity. Through investigating popular culture and the notion of disidentification, we build a community on stage where individuals are constantly shifting, trying to locate one’s power amidst this idealistic society.

Tickets are free and available to the public. For ticket reservations, please call our box office at (413) 542-2277.
