A blend of dance, physical comedy, and Cyr wheel, Spun follows a character and his ability to overcome his struggles with the help of others. This was a unique collaboration between Jonathan and Courtney Giannone. The first incarnation premiered at Dixon Place as a benefit concert for BEE’S FUND. Founded in 2002 the fund helps young lesbian, bisexual and trans women, 18-25, who have been rejected by their families with small transformational grants to help propel them forward into the next steps in their lives.
The next evolution of the work was commissioned for Jacob's Pillow and was featured on the Inside/Out stage.
