Jennifer Jackson-Camargo is a Midlands born Latinx Anglo-Bolivian theatre-maker, movement director/ choreographer and performer. She goes by the professional name Jennifer Jackson.
Her work interrogates the ways that women and girls use their bodies, her relationship with the UK, and the complexity of living between cultures and races. Underpinning all the work is the idea that space is intimately bound up with power.
Her practice is interdisciplinary, intersectional, and inclusive, encompassing theatre-making, live art, contemporary dance, folk dance, martial arts, co-creation and the excitement of a sports spectacle.
She is interested in the ways power can be subverted within a performance context, her current work seeks to embed creative access into her work.
Her work is for audiences who are interested in asking questions about identity through a global perspective.
