Created and performed by Talya Epstein and JT Ross
Talya Epstein and JT Ross met at The Boston Conservatory in 2004. Talya was studying dance and JT was studying theater; Talya still wore hippie skirts and JT still sang showtunes. JT introduced Talya to spicy food and music that isn’t played on the radio. Talya introduced JT to trees and plain-spoken honesty. They used to share a bed, but that hasn’t happened for a while…and won’t…ever again. Though they both approach making work differently, they have similar artistic values and thus decided to create something together. What you will see tonight is the beginning of their first collaboration. JT is an aspiring theatrical director and writes for us at minorprogression.com as broken brooklyn. Talya is currently dancing with Melinda Ring/Special Projects.
