A Discussion with Jennifer Harge

Jennifer Harge is an artist and educator rooted in the legacies and futures of Black experimental performance and Black spiritual traditions. Using movement as an organizing principle, she spills across choreography, installation, film, and language—collapsing form and gifting herself the freedom to play, wander, and be with multiplicity.

Black Detroit has been a partner and teacher in Harge’s work. Through her movement collective, Harge Dance Stories, she created a choreographic platform to articulate the interior worlds of Black life and living through meditations on mourning, protest, femme and queer pleasure practices, and embodied liberation.

In 2023 she was the Alma Hawkins Visiting Memorial Chair in Dance at UCLA and a Visiting Scholar at the Center for Experimental Ethnography at the University of Pennsylvania where she taught courses on Black Feminist Thought and Performance Composition.
