Jim is a performer, director and movement director who builds work for the theatre, though he's also collaborated in opera and dance. With Lucy Ireland, he recently co-founded Shotput, a dance-theatre company in Glasgow, premiering their first show, 'Ferguson and Barton', in March 2019. He co-founded the devised theatre ensemble, Fratellanza, in his hometown of Detroit, with whom he continues to create work--currently working on The Big Three Killed Me, a surreal take on Americans and their cars. With Shotput, Jim is assembling an ensemble of dancer-actors who generate work from the body up. He also loves collaborating as a devising performer in the work of others.
