Joelene English is a choreographer, performance artist and film maker. Since forming her company in 2006, her work has featured in an array of genres, venues and performative mediums. She teaches a wide range of students and professional artists.
Her work fuses taut choreography, beautiful scenography and emotional performance. Mental illness (and its impact in people) features regularly as a touchstone and theme of discussion throughout Joelene’s work.
Through the use of intricate set design and diverse multi-media, Joelene generates immersive & interactive worlds which people can step “through-the-looking-glass” into & experience for themselves. Her work is often inspired by deep and dark subject matter, allowing the audience to face their own demons & find catharsis via living interaction & experiential performance.
