Jen’s Teaching Philosophy:
“I like to live at the intersection of theory and practice. Intellectual inquiry and creative expression are partners in creating embodied performances that invite audiences and performers to be part of a conversation, rather than dividing participants into exclusively receivers or transmitters.”
See video from Jen’s workshop “Anything is a Text” presented at 2015’s Mad Theory 2 (an art-theory-action event centered at the intersection of performance and philosophy.)
