harge dance stories
Harge Dance Stories is a Detroit-based movement collective. Their performances are committed to black vernacular gestures, codes, and rituals as a way of subverting traditional postmodern aesthetics.
Jennifer Harge is the artistic director of Harge Dance Stories. She is a performer, art maker, and educator. Trained as a modern dancer, Harge’s work lies at the intersection of movement, performance art, African American culture, and choreographies of protest. Through her work with Harge Dance Stories and as a solo performer, Harge's creative work has been presented at Washington National Cathedral, Pulitzer Arts Foundation, Detroit Institute of Arts, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Music Hall Center for Performing Arts, Atlantic Center for the Arts, Dayton Contemporary Dance Company, University of Michigan, Duke University, and Wayne State University.
Harge holds a MFA from University of Iowa as a Dean’s Graduate Fellow and a BFA from University of Michigan.
