Jonathon is the other Seattle based collaborator I am working with on the Project Sea↔Bus…

Jonathan Lilly is a martial artist-turned-dancer based in Seattle.  After more than twenty years training in aikido, he was introduced to improvisational dance,  and was hooked.    In the past three years he has attended perhaps three months’ worth of jams, courses, and intensives in improvisational dance and contact improvisation.jonathon-dance-pic  He sees training in improvisational dance as a way to hone one’s ability to respond physically and emotionally in any situation.  Jonathan is particularly interested in integrating athleticism and expressiveness into his movement.  He is currently at work on his first production, called Nomads, together with Kori Martodam, to be performed in early January 2017.
