DANCE ARTIST AND CHOREOGRAPHER
VIVA LA VULVA
Jay works as a dance performer, choreographer and producer. Her work with dance artists Jo Fong, Janine Harrington and Theo Clinkard has fed into her creative practice, as well as her experience in puppetry, opera and immersive theatre. Jay is a member of the Yonis, a girl band crossing art forms, encouraging fellow women to take space and make noise. The content of her work is influenced by feminist philosophies, is of an existential nature and attempts to re-adress the audience and performer relationship. Jay tries to foster an inclusivity into the way she creates, making art which can be viewed by anyone with the hope of imparting a sense of activism from watching or taking part.
'Jay is equipped with a solid technique, vivid presence on stage, and a great wit but perhaps more importantly, she knows how to collaborate, consider and absorb direction.' - Theo Clinkard
