Joshua Lacourse aspires to create and be a part of performances that strive to bridge widening gaps between individuals and remind us of our shared human identity. He has previously trained and performed as part of The Troublemakers Ensemble Theater Training and Fall Festival of Shakespeare. A recent directoral work, Tearmann, was a collaborative and full-evening movement piece seeking to form deep connections in the absence of speech. Tearmann strove to challenge the perceptions of performers, audience members, and creators alike, while inviting us all to reconsider how we observe, conceptualize and respond to the world around us. Most recently, Joshua collaborated with choreographer Pauline Jennings on the creation of “neighboring|towns,” a multi-channel work at the Hamilonian Gallery (Washington, DC) and the full-evening length performance duet, “Sea Inside Our Skin,” which was made possible in part by BCA’s Project Vermont and with a research and development residency and support by Vermont Performance Lab and the Vermont Community Foundation. He also performed with Jennings in Seeking Nourishment, a community-building, riddle-solving urban wilderness walk featuring site-specific and interactive performances that was sponsored by the Feverish World Symposium at the University of Vermont.
