The loosening grip

Exploring the trajectory of becoming, arrival, and transformation, I offer a solo performance in conversation with donna e. perkins' current exhibition "Spill". A solo that travels from abstraction to representation. Through this conversation I am exploring the space that exists between my internal curiosity of being and the external expression of my identity.

Archway Gallery, 2305 Dunlavy St, Houston, TX 77006

A dancer, a choreographer, a singer, a movement-based performance artist, or "Miss Understood" are all descriptions of jhon r. stronks. A very magical unicorn, jhon has been described as strong enough for a man and pH-balanced enough for a woman. The choreographic work of stronks combines the fundamental elements of choreography, dance technique, and authentic movement to create dances that speak earnestly.

Chorographer/dancer jhon r. stronks and visual artist donna e. perkins have been collaborating since 2009. "I have found a space within the collaboration between donna and I, that allows me to completely open in the direction of my becoming and developing my artistry/humanity. The space we inhabit together is wide and filled with curiosities that lead me in and out of a lifetime of memories, moments and fantasies. These years spent in collaboration have manifested a world of its own. A world that shimmers and vibrates through all the grit and grime that currently surrounds us,” explains stronks.
