Let ‘im Move You is a series of works choreographed by jumatatu m. poe & Jermone “Donte” Beacham that stem from the artists’ seven-year research into J-Sette performance, the performance of joy and the conundrum of Black joy. The series currently consists of three live performance works and an installation. 
Installation works include Momentary, Strait or Straight Tagged or Branded or A Brief Moment of Recognition Amidst a Longer Finity of Disruption, and Intervention.

A Study was first developed in a residency through Kultursekretariat’s Tanzrecherche NRW program at Kulturforum Alte Post in Neuss, Germany. The Let ‘im Move You body of work to date has been made possible through a residency at the 18th Street Arts Center in Santa Monica with support from a Pew Center for Arts & Heritage Fellowship in the Arts.
