EPISODE 6: “DARE I SAY SPRING?”
OMG. ONE FULL YEAR OF THE QUARANTINE CHRONICLES!
When we created the first The Do Jump Quarantine Chronicles we had no Idea if there would be a second one. Now with the completion of “Dare I Say Spring?” suddenly we have a full cycle of episodes that tell an evocative story of this extraordinary year. Each episode’s style was dictated by our evolving technical capacity and the nature of the unique moments we were living through. The films take the viewer on an intimate romp through the inner world of an ensemble of dancers, circus performers and musicians during this precarious time. Developed on zoom, the Chronicles adapt the company’s genre defying style to film. They are filled with quirky surprises, intimacy, laughter and some much needed relief.
IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN ANY OF THE OTHER DO JUMP CHRONICLES… NOW IS YOUR CHANCE.
(Or share the whole year The Chronicles with someone you love!)
Get access to the first all 6 Episodes! You can binge watch them all in an hour.
Episodes One thru Four begin in the Spring of 2020 and take us thru the Fall. We explore and push the limits of zoom and the confines of our houses as we discover new ways to collaborate and communicate.
Episode Five “Dinner & A Show” takes the viewer on a mad cap journey through the company’s kitchens and dining rooms. It is an intimate and delicious glimpse of a group of ensemble circus performers, dancers, and musicians who have all dedicated their lives to creating ritual and celebration as they face the first holiday season in decades with no holiday show. The result is as close as one can get during a pandemic to experiencing a delicious, mischievous communal dinner and a live performance. Good anytime of year! (There is even an ingredient list in you want to make your own festive Paella).

Thanks for helping bring some laughter and light into all of our homes while supporting fight for social justice.
During this difficult pandemic year we have been lucky enough to maintain our sense of community. Through the chronicles we have been able to create work together, to pay performers and technicians and to support organizations working to make our world more just. We have donated over 5 thousand dollars to Rock The Vote, Protect The Results, Fair Fight and Central World Kitchen. All without leaving our houses or spreading the virus.
Over the past year we used our New Works Fund to create the Quarantine Chronicles.
Please make a donation to DO JUMP so we that when the time comes we will have replenished our resources to create a new work for the stage.

“…highly physical work that juxtaposes the lyrical with the loony, the political with the poetic. [Robin Lane & DOJUMP] reinforces a child’s sense of wonder and revives it in adults.” NY Times
