Biography


Drew Jacoby has performed work from a wide range of choreographers including George Balanchine, Jiri Kylián, William Forsythe, Maurice Bejart, Pina Bausch, and Jean Christophe Maillot and had works created on her by Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Paul Lightfoot and Sol Leon, Crystal Pite, Edouard Lock, Christopher Wheeldon, Marco Goecke, and Alonzo King.

In 2008 she founded her own company based in New York, Jacoby and Pronk, which toured to venues such as Jacob’s Pillow, Belgrade Dance Festival, and Holland Dance Festival. While in NYC, she also danced with Christopher Wheeldon’s Morphoses. In 2012 Drew joined Nederlands Dans Theater, before joining Royal Ballet of Flanders as a principal dancer in 2015. In 2016 she collaborated on a video with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and musical/visual artist Woodkid in Paris. In 2018 she was nominated for a Benois de la Danse award for her performance in Pina Bausch’s Cafe Muller.

Every Lucius song is an act of enchantment, a spell cast by the indelibly harmonies and taut hooks. The band, founded and fronted by the enchanting Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, have drawn acclaim for powerful songs, mesmerizing stage presence and bold visual aesthetics. Over the past two years, Wolfe and Laessig joined Roger Waters band, the Pink Floyd legend, for nearly 200 tour dates. In 2018 Wolfe and Laessig join Lucius drummer Dan Molad and guitarist Peter Lalish to create the album NUDES: a collection of acoustically driven songs showcasing their otherworldly harmonies, including covers of songs like the folk staple “Goodnight, Irene” (recorded with Waters himself).

The band has performed sets at Bonnaroo, Newport Folk Festival, Lollapalooza, End of The Road, Reading and Leeds Festivals and more and shared the stage with a variety of musicians including Kacey Musgraves, Jack White, Mavis Staples, Sara Bareilles, Tegan and Sara and David Byrne. In addition to the collection of acoustic recordings NUDES and their two studio albums Wildewoman (2014) and Good Grief (2016), the band has also collaborated on records with John Legend, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, The War on Drugs and many more.
