Jennifer Lacey is an american dance artist based in Paris. Her constant project is a renegotiation of production methods, generating pieces that are always based in dancing but don’t always look like dance. She creates works that propose an inventive and playful hermeneutics of bodies and their environments. Often co-signing and collaborating, the products of her activity unbind dance from the spectacular whilst still investing in the multiple ways that the performative can manifest, effect and communicate.
Her works have been produced and staged internationally in theatres, museums, galleries, workshops and publications. She has been a recipient of a Doris Duke Impact fellowship, a Foundation for the Performing Arts Award and a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship. She is currently a member of the second cohort of DAS graduate school’s THIRD program.
