On Thursday, January 27, at 6:30 p.m. Choreographer Jenn Freeman, a current resident at The Church, and director Alexander Hammer will present a screening of a trailer for their forthcoming film “Is it Thursday Yet?,” an evening length solo dance piece based on the life-altering experience of receiving a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder at the age of 33. ​A Q&A about their project in development will follow.

Freeman is an American choreographer, dance performer and educator based in New York City. Most recently, she has been commissioned to set a new work on the Martha Graham Dance Company that will premiere in 2022. For over a decade, Freeman has worked alongside Sonya Tayeh as her choreographic associate in the development of pieces and large scale productions for American Ballet Theater, The Gibney Company, The Martha Graham Dance Company, Juilliard School, Guggenheim Works & Process, LA Ballet, Cirque du Soleil and more. A graduate of NYU Tisch, professionally, she has danced in works by choreographers Sonya Tayeh, Kyle Abraham, Larry Keigwin, Charlotte Boye-Christensen, and many others.

Hammer is a director and editor who explores many dimensions of storytelling. His work spans from scripted film and TV, features documentary and music video to interactive content, experiential storytelling and live performances. He most recently directed a three part documentary series, “Expecting Amy” for HBO MAX.​

Tickets for the screening at Q&A are $5 at thechurchsagharbor.org. The Church is at 48 Madison Street in Sag Harbor.
