Bogliasco Fellowship

John Jasperse

John Jasperse will develop a new work that involves dancing, media, and writing, centered around the experience of aging and our existence in time. While recent dances have centered on studio research with highly technical, youthful dancers, this project will center Jasperse’s own experience as a dance artist approaching 60 years old as the core of the work.


The activities of John Jasperse Projects are supported, in part, by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Cultural Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, the New York State Council on the Arts, the James E. Robison Foundation, the Kyle J. Mulrooney Foundation, the Lion & Hare Foundation, and individual contributions. Portions of this work were developed during residencies at Bogliasco Foundation and Yaddo.
