Jessica Roseman and Jorrit Dijkstra present “Buzz”, an improvisational duet for dance and saxophone. Dancer/choreographer Jessica Roseman and saxophonist and composer Jorrit Dijkstra have been collaborating improvisationally in Boston for three years. The duo create dialogue with sound, rhythm, touch, weight, expression, and space to compose abstract stories together. Their ongoing improvisational exchange, “Buzz,” draws as heavily upon both free improvisation practice in music and in dance, as it does on relationship dynamics and awareness. The duo practices being fully present with each other, and while at play, discover new manifestations of that presence. In this way, “Buzz” inherently explores the politics of our identities in space together.
