This witty, captivating, and wickedly funny dance soloist returns to SBC after receiving the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in Choreography in 2013. Sure to delight, Job Set presents a series of comedic movement monologues related to our work lives: an interview going awry, a tour guide caught in a diorama, a librarian falling for prepositions (and more), each revealing the beauty and silliness of our work!
