Jamie Graham and Amy Larimer – Creators/Performers
La Dynasty – DJ/Musician
The Raving Jaynes (Jamie Graham & Amy Larimer) mix dance, improv, and physical theater to tell entirely-improvised stories. Nothing is choreographed! Nothing is scripted! They've been called the "real deal: sharp, witty, gorgeous, and utterly unique." (Dance Enthusiast). Super special guest La Dynasty will be singing, rapping and spinning her way through an improvised soundscore built of tracks from fellow female artists!
After suffering through the low wages and minimal recognition of the post-modern dance world, Jamie Graham and Amy Larimer are pursuing new prosperity & fame in the lucrative world of improv comedy!
