Jonathan Matthews / Holly Sass

BREAKTIME is a site-fluid reservoir for bad ideas, generated and performed by Jonathan Matthews and Holly Sass. Classmates in Tisch Dance’s class of 2014, they were often cast together in a diverse array of work before joining forces in 2017 for Tisch Dance’s Alumni Choreographic Workshop under the mentorship of Gus Solomons, Jr. Since then they have performed throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn, and neighboring states, and annually create evening length works for the Tisch Dance Summer Residency Festival. The pair has been greatly nourished by residencies through the Jonah Boaker Arts Foundation, Create:ART, and The Croft. They have additionally participated in inaugural grassroots residencies, such as Jemila MacEwan’s Land Falls at Franklin Chthonics, and Bridget Struthers’s Barn Dances in Brattleboro, VT.
