The Raving Jaynes (NYC)
The Raving Jaynes : Improvised Dance/Theater is a highly physical improv duo that creates spontaneous theater for intimate spaces. Weaving together techniques from clown, dance and improv, the performers, Jamie Graham and Amy Larimer, play between mediums. Movement, text and sound are woven, smashed and twisted together to transform what waits in the empty space into sweaty stories. Nothing is choreographed! Nothing is scripted!
The Raving Jaynes perform regularly at the PIT in New York City, teach workshops and are advocates for the art of improvisation as a performance practice. We have been presented at IMPRO Amsterdam; the Abundance Festival in Karlstad, Sweden; TCIF in Minneapolis; the ADaPT Festival in Santa Barbara; The Crisis Art Festival in Arezzo, Italy; The Comedy in Dance Festival at Triskelion Arts; Dancemopolitan at Joe's Pub; Duofest in Philadelphia; The NYC Improv Festival; The Unscripted New York Improvised Theatre Festival, The Out of Bounds Comedy Festival in Austin, The District Improv Festival in D.C., Your Move in Jersey City and The Tank.
