DESPONDENCE

A hoopdance film by Morgan Jenkins & Lee Jeffries

Despondence exposes the dark shadows of depression that cast over one's mind and relationships.

Morgan Jenkins @missmojangles

Morgan's passion for hoop dance has sent her around the world as an instructor and performer. Known for her Hoopography, she has been featured in many music videos and was cast to play a hooping character created specifically for her in Showtime's Roadies. With a background in filmmaking, Morgan fuses her love for cinematic storytelling and hoopdance by creating award-winning hoop videos. She hopes to collaborate with more artists, dancers, and creators, and to continue directing videos that will push hoopdance into the mainstream to spread joy of hooping. Morgan can be found spinning with her hoop troupe, Hooptown Hotties and performing solo as Miss Mo'Jangles.

Lee Jeffries @photographlee

Lee is a southeastern based performance artist who fuses various dance styles with prop manipulation to create a beautiful display of grace and skill. With a background in hip hop, tutting, and football, his unique hoop style has distinguished him as one of the most highly sought after teachers and performers for festivals and workshops. He not only performs with hoops, but is proficient with fire fans, poi, fire hoops and staff. Lee's goal is to see the art and freedom of hooping expand as both an integral part of the dance industry, and a platform for self expression.

Lee and Morgan’s paths crossed as instructors at Hoopcamp in 2015. Their first collaboration was the groundbreaking and award winning video, Flowmance, which features steamy partner Hoopography and a story of passion and jealousy. Despondence is their second film as creators and performers. They look forward to many future artistic collaborations with creatives in the dance and film world.
