[Jesse Zaritt and Jumatatu Poe]
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Mutually interested in ideas of queerness and heroism, Jesse Zaritt and Jumatatu Poe are working towards the creation of a performance world that explores danger coupled with fragility, chosenness as compared to loneliness, and sincerity versus hyperbole. This peformance includes moments of full nudity.
