the ChoreoJoey Project began as a challenge to create and present innovative narrative productions. It often invokes the creative efforts of a rotating team of artists to display integrated mixed media dance performance. founded in 2014, the ChoreoJoey Project is committed to the preservation and use of jazz and West African dance in harmony with narration, poetry, and storytelling to create new ballets with contemporary sociopolitical and historical contexts. Their ballets have been presented work regionally throughout the Northeast.

season 8 begins with PLIGHT, a choreographic nod to blaxploitation films incorporating collective tales of artists struggling to have their dreams meet the realities of living. will anyone create their path beyond any disadvantages that stand in their way?
