KAIROS Dance Theater’s work would not be possible without the support, skill, and dedication of the following individuals:
Jayne Murphy has been working in theaters for over 30 years. She has worked in Ireland, Russia, India, Venezuela, Ecuador, South Africa, and across the US with many different dance and theater companies. She toured internationally with the National Theatre of the Deaf for five years as interpreter and company/stage manager. In Johannesburg, South Africa, Jayne oversaw the construction of a new venue, The Dance Factory, which to this day is still the center of dance in the city. For six years, she trained township youth here on all aspects of theater work, giving many of them the skills that launched their own careers. Jayne has also worked at The Dance Complex in Cambridge, MA since 1993 in a vital management and maintenance capacity. A few of the many companies and choreographers Jayne has worked with and managed over the years include: Prometheus Dance, Nicola Hawkins, EgoArt, Danny Swain, Anna Myer & Dancers, Falling Flight Project, Danny McCusker Dance, Wendy Jehlen/Anikai, Brian Crabtree, Marcus Schulkind, Christine Bennett, and David Parker.
Dev Blair (they/them/theirs or she/her/hers) is a third year at Boston University. They’re an interdisciplinary artist, activist, writer, performer, and freelance content creator. They sing, move and dance, act, and write (plays, poetry, etc.) All of their work is in line with their primary artistic goal: to change the culture. As such they use their art to talk about identity, their own experiences as a black queer non-binary femme, and occasionally to educate people who want to support them and others like them.
