Summer Stages Dance @ ICA/Boston presents a special opportunity to see an artist at work. Following a week of residency to develop their newest project Memory Fleet, interdisciplinary artist and choreographer Jasmine Hearn will share with audiences their development process in an open rehearsal featuring movement, improvisation, conversation, and song. In Memory Fleet, Hearn and their collaborators incorporate performance and archive work that centers the remembering of choreographies of care – dances and gestures of Black mothering passed on through generational lineages.

Jasmine Hearn is an interdisciplinary artist, director, performer, choreographer, organizer, doula, and teacher. Hearn has performed with Helen Simoneau Danse, Urban Bush Women, and David Dorfman Dance, among others.  Hearn is the recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grants to Artists Award (2023), the Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon Polsky Rome Prize in Design with collaborator Athena Kokoronis of Domestic Performance Agency (2023), and a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” Award for Outstanding Performer (2021, 2017).
