CURATION

For the past twelve years, Jeff has been curating CATCH with longtime cohorts Andrew Dinwiddie and Caleb Hammons.

CATCH--the 2015 Obie Award-winning performance series--is a hydra-headed, disparately-disciplinary, rough and ready performance series-event that tornadoes through Brooklyn every couple of months.  For ten years, CATCH has presented dozens upon dozens of shows, filled with hundreds of emerging artists and downtown luminaries.

Venues include: Knockdown Center, The Invisible Dog, The Bushwick Starr, Abrons Arts Center, The Chocolate Factory, Performance Space 122, La Mama ETC, Galapagos Art Space, Starr Space, and The Center for Performance Research.  CATCH has traveled to Austin, TX, Portland, OR, Minneapolis, MN, Philadelphia (x2), Chicago, Hudson, NY, and enjoyed a week long residency at Mount Tremper Arts in the Catskills.

MOVEMENT RESEARCH SPRING FESTIVAL

In 2008 Jeff had the honor of curating the Movement Research Spring Festival alongside Milka Djordjevich, Chris Peck and Anna Sperber. 

From the festival brochure:
Two weeks of performances, excursions, and experiences in, around, and away from Judson Memorial Church.  We are casting out lines in several dimensions and diverging axes: digging into our pasts while following hints from current trends to divine the future, looking locally in our neighborhoods and living rooms one day and stretching the boundaries of our perceived communities the next, exploring rural/natural as well as alternative post-industrial landscapes, and seeking inspiration in the vast expanse of geological time while resonating with the fragmented rhythm of our modern obsession with the new. We are imagining strategies for identifying and dissolving obstacles between disciplines, mediums, and scenes, and plotting to subvert familiar structures. Most of all, we are celebrating what we love about making performance at this moment in time and space.  Participation is mandatory.

There are dozens of insightful blog entries to pour over in the Critical Correspondence archive.
