First associated with Jacob’s Pillow as a student in 1998, Jonah Bokaer is now known internationally as a choreographer, media artist, artist space developer, and social entrepreneur. In addition to making his own work, he also collaborates with other important artists, choreographing many of Robert Wilson’s operatic productions. He is a founder of both Chez Bushwick and the Center for Performance Research, two Brooklyn venues of increasing importance. He was the youngest dancer ever to join the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, performing with them from 2000 to 2007. He first presented his work at the Pillow in 2011 with the U.S. premiere of Why Patterns, followed by the U.S. premiere of Curtain the next year. In Rules of the Game, Bokaer was inspired by elements of Pirandello’s 1918 play of the same title, evoking both the avant garde and the absurd.
