Review of SHE: A Multimedia Suite on Sexual Violence, Sandra Bland, and Healing

SHE was a truly stunning and powerful artistic statement made up of so many individual contributions. But what truly stands out is how Parker managed to link together movement, images, stories, and a number of genres of music into such a coherent and dynamic performance. - Cisco Bradley, Jazz Right Now

STATEMENT PIECES: Remarks

"Last night's Statement Pieces was a powerful and moving ending to a long day. Jinah Parker and her dancer's artistic expression was heartfelt, thought provoking and took you on an emotional journey of love, fear, womanhood, the realities of oppression and so much more.. Thank God for the Arts!" - Cheyenne VanCooten

 

"Amidst the madness of this city and the drudgery of the everyday, I find myself drawn to arts events that transcend and take the audience on a journey. Last night I had just such an experience watching Jinah Parker's Statement Pieces at Dixon Place. That was amazing!" - Cisco Bradley

 

"Moving, evocative, thoughtful and impressive." - Ethan Paulini

 

"Jinah Parker's dance program tonight at Dixon Place was really incredible and inspiring. She and the 3 other dancers really lifted my spirits. Always grateful for how art can refuel and redirect us when it is exceptional. Tonight was exceptional." - Kevin Powell

November Artist Feature: Dancer Jinah Parker

"For the first time, Jazz Right Now is featuring an artist who does not explicitly create music or sound, but one who choreographs some of her dance to jazz and especially to free improvisation."

BWW Reviews: EVIDENCE Triumphs at The Secret Theater

"Choreographer Juan Michael Porter II danced alongside the stunning Jinah Parker, moving through inner conflicts that swelled and released at the energetic duality of their pairing."

- Matt Hanson, DanceWorld.com

 

Dance: Farewell & Greetings

"Essence “a rainbow portrayal of different realities of the Black American woman” was beautiful and potent. The four dancers, Donna Clark, Shauntée Henry, Elise King and Jinah Parker were stellar." - Francine L. Trevens, ART TIMES
