Danspace Project’s DraftWork series hosts informal showings of new works in varying stages of development. They are followed by a conversation and Q&A between the artists and DraftWork curator Ishmael Houston-Jones.

This season, Danspace has re-envisioned DraftWork as a series of virtual engagement.

J. Bouey is out here doing their best, damnit! Currently moving on pandemic timing and prioritizing rest, J. is finding their way back to joy while studying grief and suicidal ideation for the creation of a new project. Determined to manifest the dreams dreamt in their youth, J. is assuming this responsibility because these dreams sustained them when the sun didn’t shine or shined too bright to see. JBouey.com
