teXtmoVes is a intergenerational collaborative of poets/dancers/musicians who work in the indisciplinary intersection between spoken word and movement, poetry and dance, experimentally exploring their boundaries and connections. We work with poems by local poets choreographed and danced by local dancers.Our goal is to continue to bring more members into the collaborative, to increase our diversity, and to bring performance ready works to a diverse audience from teen-agers to elders, We are a repertory collaborative so while the poets and their poems remain in our repertoire, they may be choreographed and danced differently in successive years. While our collaborators may change over time as members move out of the local area, we have a steady group. Our poets include  Doug Holder, founder of Ibbetson Press, columnist for arts in Somerville News, blog Boston Area Small Press &Poetry Scene, published poet; Judson Evans, Humanities Faculty Berklee, published poet contemporarylyric/haiku/visual artist; Lo Galluccio, jazz poet of Somerville, published poet, recording artist; Elizabeth McKim, jazz poet of Lynn, published poet, Faculty Lesley; Sarah Anne Stinnett, published performance poet; Karen Klein, published poet.  Current dancers include Audrey Albert King, dance therapist, Faculty, Lesley; Katrina Obarski,member Sasso &Comany; Teresa Fardella, children/young aduts ballet teacher; Kelley Donovan, founder KD&D; Jessie Jeanne Stinnett, co-Founder BostonDanceTheater; Olivia Coombs, BostonDanceTheater; Isvel Bello, BostonDanceTheater; Jim Bsnta, member PB&J, BackPocket;  Karen Klein, former member Prometheus Elders Ensemble; Jennifer Matthews, singer/songwriter, recording artist.  teXtmoVes began in April, 2016.
