DANCE ARTIST AND CHOREOGRAPHER
VIVA LA VULVA
Originally from Edinburgh, Jay is based in London. She has worked with contemporary choreographers Theo Clinkard, Luca Silvestrini (Protein Dance) and Sarah Fahie. As well as working at Mandinga Arts and the People Pile, she has experience in using the theatricalities of her performance to engage with audiences inside and outside of the theatre. She is a member of The Yonis, a girl band who make multi-disciplinary work with the intention of empowering fellow women to take space and make noise. As a choreographer, the content of her work is influenced by feminist philosophies, is of an existential nature and attempts to re-address the audience and performer relationship.
'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
