Jennifer Nugent and Paul Matteson, both Bessie Award-winning performers and former Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company dancers (2009-2014), are known for their phenomenal partnering work, creating duets that are intense, forceful, and passionate.  Their latest duet, another piece apart, reflects on a history of a fractured togetherness and blurred boundaries.  The movement tones and fluxes in and out of knotted touch.  This is the Boston premier of this piece.

Jennifer Nugent and Paul Matteson premiered their first duet Fare Well at Danspace Project in 2006, beginning an ongoing collaboration.  They danced together with David Dorfman Dance, Lisa Race Project and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Company.  They have taught at numerous festivals including The Bates Dance Festival, The American Dance Festival, and SALT Dance Fest.   Jennifer is currently on faculty at Sarah Lawrence College and regularly teaches in NYC at Gibney Studios and through Movement Research. Paul is full-time faculty at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Their latest duet, another piece apart will premiere in October at New York Live Arts before coming to The Dance Complex.  Their latest duet, another piece apart, premiered in October at New York Lives Arts before The Dance Complex.

"Their resilience, their ability to duplicate moves when they dance side by side, and the speed with which each can accommodate to the other's new ideas bespeak understanding and respect."

-Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice
