Choreographer Jonah Bokaer and his international dancing troupe took the Jorgensen stage on Friday, Oct. 19 for the world premiere of his new routine, “Late Nights on Air,” and three performances of older work. Bokaer created “Late Nights on Air” in collaboration with musicians, composers and architect Charles Renfro, who contributed the use of projection to give the performance new layers. Bokaer and Renfro strove to use their performance to break down many binaries created by society.

“We live in a divided world,” Bokaer said. “Charles has worked with the theme of doubling in a beautiful way.”
