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 exists at the meeting point of performance, and the excitement of a sports spectacle. She is particularly interested in the sports arena as a space that deals in the fatigue and resurrection of bodies, and the porous relationship between audience and performer. 


Her works ENDURANCE, and WRESTLELADSWRESTLE play with the cycle of destruction and rehabilitation inherent in these sports spectacles, borrowing tropes and aesthetics from this world to agitate and interrogate ideas around power and society. 


Jennifer uses her own embodied experiences as a sportsperson and performer to play with the way language frames and shapes our experiences and histories. Using commentary and narration to erode and shape how we relate to living, breathing bodies on stage, her performances interrogate the ways that women and girls use their bodies, her relationship with the UK, and the complexity of living between cultures. 


Underpinning all the work is the idea that space is intimately bound up with power. She is interested in the ways power can be subverted within a performance context, and she is interested in the role of embedded creative access in this conversation.


Her practice is interdisciplinary, intersectional, and inclusive, encompassing theatre-making, live art, contemporary dance, folk dance, martial arts, and co-creation.


As a performer Jennifer has worked for The National Theatre, The Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Shakespeare's GlobeBath Theatre Royal, Battersea Arts Centre, The Lyric Hammersmith, The Royal & Derngate, The Harold Pinter Theatre, Derby Theatre, Theatre 503, The Finborough, The Southwark Playhouse.


International work includes The Bervaldhallen (Stockholm), Pathos Theatre (Munich), The Pearl Theatre (New York), and The Lucas Theatre (Savannah International Festival, USA). In 2023, she was selected for Battersea Arts Centre international exchange "Scene Change".


Jennifer holds a BSc in Pyschology, and trained at East 15 Acting School. She has since trained with numerous performance practitioners including John Wright (Told by an Idiot), and Rosemeary Brandt in Choreology (Laban), Olga Masleinnikova (movement practice, Laban), Leila McMillan (Flying Low & Passing Through), Sue Buckmaster (Advanced Puppetry Training- Theatre Rites), Kevin Finnan (Motionhouse Dance), Tomislav English, and Inaki Azgapilla. 


Jennifer is an Associate Artist with Openworks Theatre,  Upstart Theatre, and with physical theatre ensemble Tangled Feet.
