"Xan Burley and Alex Springer [co-directors of the Median Movement] perform with amazing physicality in mind meld synch whether they are moving together or manipulating each other… We never really stop wondering where things are headed, and that is one of the successes of the [work]." - Quinn Batson, offoffoff.com

JACK Rally is a movement-based performance piece. Over 25 dancers and all present watchers comprise one singular community. You are called to witness and join.

This is JACK Rally. We rally each night; each night is unlike the others. We are, each of us, Jack. We all go by other names. We percolate, rumble, tumble and float. We build a history all our own. Your presence is essential. JACK Rally interrogates and honors unity. JACK Rally revels in rhythm and revving. JACK Rally exists to amplify our voice as a united alliance, if only for the benefit of hearing one another.

For this project, choreographers Xan Burley and Alex Springer have collected and collaborated with over 30 artists, many of which have remained in the process from the start. Through improvisation-based workshops as part of their artist residency at University Settlement, the Median Movement encountered the New York Movement Collaborative, a community ensemble of young artists. The Median Movement is pleased to welcome these young performers to participate in JACK Rally's premiere, completing the 27-member cast diverse in age, background, and performance experience. Dorian Wallace, accomplished musician and composer, generously collaborated with Burley and Springer to create the work's sound score.
