This post starts a series of new profiles on Whim W’Him’s dancers, to be rolled out across the spring. During the week of each Behind the Scenes Dancer Feature, additional photos and interesting or amusing facts about the featured dancer will also be posted on Facebook and Twitter.
JIM KENT – Quirky. Individual. Expressive.
We start with Jim Kent, who danced in the first Whim W’Him production, at the enigmatic center of 3Seasons, “as the human and observer. Overcome by the need to own, to possess, he is the red thread tying us all together, experiencing our journey simultaneously as protagonist and witness.”
The single dancer still performing with the company, Jim is a thread that connects the very first Whim W’Him performances at On the Boards in 2010 with Whim W’Him today. He is also, to change metaphors, like a balance wheel or hairspring for the company.*
