Jess Johns and Emma Cosgrave will talk dance and attempt to be honest for 1 hour. There is no script and no choreography, the performance can over ever happen once. Kia ora, Jess Johns here! I'm 26 years old, born and raised here in Wellington Te Whanganui-a-Tara. My mother is Moldovan and my father is Lebanese. I'm a super deep thinker, I love to question everything and I love performing. Emma Cosgrave is a Ngāti Pūkenga dancer, choreographer, and scholar based in Tāmaki Makaurau and Pōneke. Most recently, Emma danced with Footnote New Zealand Dance and Atamira Dance Company on various works touring Aotearoa/New Zealand. Emma and Jess will dance, talk and attempt to be honest for 1 hour.
