In A Room On Broad St is Jacob Jonas’s view on society’s competitive nature: how it hurts relationships, creates our work ethic, and brings certain qualities out of each individual including balance, patience and strength. This show will unite a variety of different artists and mediums into one collaborative artistic performance. Dance, film, projection, and music will all be involved to explore the endless possibilities of art through collaboration.
