Jamb is an exciting evenings’ length dance concert whose choreography was inspired by a series of movement experiments based on human confinement.  From this launching point we have created movement that is lush and intricate, deviant and commanding.  In Jamb we enter a mysterious world of subterfuge and self consumption; a world where we submit to our restraints and fear the natural forces we seek to overcome.  With choreography by Jim McGinn, Jamb is skillfully danced by the stellar cast of TopShakeDance; Dana Detweiler, Chase Hamilton, Pamela James, Amanda Morse, and Jim McGinn.  Jamb is set to a fascinating score of field recorded sound by Loren Chasse.
