Jacob ‘Kujo’ Lyons didn’t intend to start out a career in dance. As an international b-boy, circus acrobat, and choreographer, it’s surprising to learn that his entire life path happened by accident.

See the complete Endpain interview with Lyons—who danced in the premiere of Jacob JonasON ME in August, 2017 at the Ford Amphitheatre—and Alison Hersel:
