Dance Exchange
New Hampshire Ave: This is a place to… (2014)

Video for Dance Exchange, an intergenerational company of artists that creates dance and engages people in making art, about their “Moving Field Guides” Project. Moving Field Guides are workshops that use movement to facilitate the entry of novice observers into the complexities of ecological structures and processes.

Dance Exchange was founded by MacArthur award-winner Liz Lerman in 1976 and has produced more than 100 innovative dance/theatre works, presented thousands of performances and conducted innumerable community encounters. With these activities, the company has reached communities of every size from Los Angeles, California to Eastport, Maine, from Yamaguchi, Japan to Gdansk, Poland. Jori has worked with Dance Exchange as guest artist, company manager, production coordinator, and documentarian.

Providence Athenaeum and the Hive Archive
Artists in the Archive (2011)

Artists in the Archive, a collaborative project between The Hive Archive and the Providence Athenaeum, was conceived as a means to explore the possibilities the Athenaeum holds by inviting three artists (Holly Ewald, Lisa Perez, and Susannah Strong) to spend three months delving into the library’s special collections and creating original work based on their findings.

Greater Kennedy Plaza
Tape Art (2011)

Tape Artists Michael Townsend, Colin Bliss, Pamela Baron, and others spent all June 2011 constructing a 14,000 square foot drawing honoring Roger Williams and the 375th anniversary of the city in the heart of downtown Providence. The mural is rooted in Roger Williams’ arrival to RI and explores his legacy through the themes of roots, hope, ingenuity, and freedom.

At the end of the month, the community came together to deconstruct the drawing.

Joey Quits (2011)

Video of Jori’s friend Joey, a labor organizer and room service hotel worker, quitting his job with the help of his bandmates in the What Cheer? Brigade.

Also seen on YouTube (by nearly 3 million people in 3 weeks and closer to 5 million now) and via major media including Access HollywoodThe Huffington PostCNN, etc.

In an effort to direct this attention and energy toward positive change, Jori also created JoeyQuits.com, a site for hotel workers to make public their unjust working conditions. Special thanks for Peter Bussigel and Chris Erway for programming help.

Community MusicWorks
Anthem in DC (2010)

Sebastian Ruth, Founder & Artistic Director of Community MusicWorks, was inspired to commission Anthem in November 2008 after reading an article by Bob Herbert in The New York Times in which the author framed the 2008 presidential election in the context of the civil rights movement.

Anthem was composed by CMW then-resident musician Jessie Montgomery, with lyrics by Fidelia “Kirby” Vasquez, a 16-year old CMW cello student. Jessie combined The Star Spangled Banner with Lift Ev’ry Voice and Sing (commonly known as the Black National Anthem). The combining of two of our nation’s significant musical anthems represents, according to Kirby, “a whole step for change.”

Produced and edited by Jori Ketten, with footage by Keith Heyward, Matt Mahaney, and Ben Gilberg
