Jennifer Rose is an international choreographer, performer, teacher, director and former member of internationally renowned Shen Wei Dance Arts. She has performed at notable venues such as Lincoln Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Festival du Cannes and The Olympic Theatre in Beijing. She creates works in collaboration with regional artists in lesser known crevices and larger metropolises of the world to produce highly theatrical and visual dance theatre to ignite cultural dialogue, give power to the unheard voice and liberate the personal experience of freedom.
Her work has been presented at the US Cultural Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia, Cultural Consulate of Andalusia, Spain, Ancient Ruins of Extremadura, Spain, Congress-Legalize Dance, Los, Angeles, CA, multiple venues across Oaxaca, Mexico and various artist residencies around the world. She teaches masterclasses around the globe based on contemporary forms, theatrical expression and martial arts principals and alternatively offers workshops on Shen Wei's Natural Body Development Technique. She believes live performance is an opportunity for both performers and audiences to insist on real time transformation, express universal agreements and transcend the art of story-telling.
