Winter Granada Artist-in-Residence John Jasperse creates and directs Beyond Belief. The new work will explore the nature of truth and illusion. It will address both the properties and results of beliefs and belief systems and the processes involved in their construction, re-evaluation and development.

Jasperse’s new work will consider both the potentially uncomfortable and often disconcerting inconsistencies that abound in the real that can at times catalyze one to reject it versus the relative neatness, clarity, and comfort that the false can sometimes bring. The work will explore heresy, radical ideas, perceived delusional thoughts and behavior, and just plain nonsense as powerful tools, which can paradoxically hold us back and alternately incite transformational growth.

As Artistic Director/Choreographer for the John Jasperse Company, Jasperse continues to build a growing presence on the international contemporary dance scene. His choreography engages its audiences in rich and innovative aesthetic and intellectual experiences, thereby expanding the form of contemporary concert dance and its relevance to the greater culture.

The Jasperse choreography world premieres March 6-8 and March 13-15 in Main Theatre.
