Workshop Description

Throughout the years of grooving and performance, Jacob has been exploring challenges within bridging his perception of what it means to hold masculine and feminine energies. Jacob will be facilitating a guided meditation that holds empathy and compassion at the forefront, that will continue into an independent body and mind improvisation warm up. Jacob will be teaching Gibney Company repertory work A Measured Existence created by Yin Yue, a choreographer of Gibney Company’s 2020 Spring Season.


Queer Filipino performing artist, Jacob Thoman is originally from Cincinnati, OH. He has performed and been in creative processes with choreographers such as Stefanie Batten Bland, Crystal Pite, and Roy Assaf, among others throughout his training at the Juilliard School, graduating class of 19’. Post departure from Juilliard, he worked with choreographer Akram Khan at the Shed before joining Gibney Company as an Artistic Associate.
