Jennifer Jackson

Jennifer is a Latinx British-Bolivian performer, theatre maker and movement director/choreographer, with a particular focus on women's bodies in performance.

Her work interrogates the ways that women and girls use their bodies, her personal relationship with the UK, and the duality of living between cultures and races.

Jennifer was awarded the Leverhulme Scholarship in 2019 by The Egg, Theatre Royal Bath and The Lowry, Developed With programme to develop Thank Heaven for Little Grrrls, a performance for a cast of 8–12-year-old girls. She is currently an EVOLVE Artist, Oxford Playhouse developing WRESTLELADSWRESTLE and under commission from HOME Manchester to make the solo piece Endurance for PUSH 2021.

The Live Work Fund will support her exploration of digital and multi-modal approaches to co-creation and choreography, through her larger body of performative research, titled TAKE SPACE. The work encompasses the triptych of productions and reaches out into new forms, examining the notion that space is intimately bound up with power.
