A creator from a young age, Jennifer Essex has been presenting work professionally for the last five years. As well as presenting work under the collective Young Lungs Dance Exchange, of which she was a founding member, she has developed works for theatre and film. The Junior Professional program of Contemporary Dancers, Theatre Serendipity, and Sarasvati productions have all commissioned work from her. In 2005, Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers performed her solo “Royal Outlaw”. Her work combines intricate visual imagery with demanding physicality, imaginative words and an innate sense of theatricality.
As a performer, Jennifer was a member of TRIP dance company for five years, performing in three new creations by Artistic Director Karen Kuzak and touring across Canada. She was also a member of Winnipeg’s Contemporary Dancers, Canada’ oldest contemporary dance company. With WCD she performed a range of works from highly theatrical improvisation to intensely physical. As an independent dancer based in London (U.K.) she has performed with Armonico Consort, Let’s Paint the Town Red and Neon Dance.
A dance theatre work which tells the story of a woman falling in love, experiencing loss, and many funny and poignant moments in-between.
