Jordan MacIntosh-Houghham | Bad Bad Dance
Jordan MacIntosh-Hougham (they/them) is a nonbinary performer, choreographer and video artist currently based in Seattle, WA. As a self-defined bastard child of transhumanism, the postmodern dance lineage, mindfulness, and pop art, they create original works that are rooted at the intersection of technology and performance. Though often working with elements of humor and spectacle, their work rigorously examines the multiplicity that is held in the body, and challenges preconceptions of performers and audiences alike. Under the moniker Bad Bad Dance, they create performances with a network of collaborators who share a commitment to self-reflective, process-oriented, and loving praxis. Together, they source the traits and experiences we think of as unworthy, dark, or uncomfortable... but the surprising result is slightly cartoonish, deeply relatable, and often leaves audiences questioning if failure is really as bad as we think.
Originally hailing from the Olympic Peninsula, Jordan MacIntosh-Hougham graduated from Bennington College in 2016, and since have been produced by Velocity Dance Center, On the Boards, and the Shaun Keylock Company. They have been an artist in residence at EMPAC and Studio Current, and have worked for Kota Yamazaki, Dana Reitz, Elena Demyanenko, Wade Madsen, LanDforms, Morgan Thorson, and Drama Tops.
SassyBlack (Catherine Harris-White) is a multifaceted creative force with a focus in the performing and literary arts. Hailing from Seattle, this Goddess of “psychedelic soul” & “hologram funk” explores sound through deep electronic compositions.
A graduate of Cornish College of the Arts, Sassy has fostered a thriving solo career, writing and producing all of her music with over 15 projects released since 2014.
Along with her music, which has been featured on Adult Swim and the new BET series Twenties, her acting prowess has been featured on HBO’s Vinyl and Comedy Central’s Broad City. Sassy’s musical journey is available for listening and purchase through Bandcamp, Spotify & all other streaming platforms.
