company biography

spacejunk dance is a Jersey City, NJ based performance project founded in 2016 by Ashley Yehoda and Lillian Joergensen. The spacejunk aesthetic is rooted in the use of exhaustion, athleticism, and improvisation to create works that are raw in physicality and present the performing body as the unvarnished human machine. Since the company’s founding in 2016, spacejunk dance has had the privilege of performing throughout New York City, Philadelphia, and the Northeast- most notably at Peridance Capezio Center APEX Showcase, Center for Performance Research, New Dance Alliance Performance Mix Festival at University Settlement, the New Masculinities Festival at the LGBT Center NYC, The Craft at Threes Brewing, Boston Contemporary Dance Festival, SMUSH Gallery, Iron Factory SHARE, Kun-Yang Lin/ Dancers InHale/ExHale Series, the Bethlehem Steel Stacks, and Painted Bride Arts Center.
