Theatre & Performance

Jane was choreographer and rehearsal director through the creation and touring of actress and disability activist Liz Carr’s ‘exciting, fun packed, laughter filled roller-coaster of a show Assisted Suicide the Musical. A theatrical extravaganza, the show entertained with dark humour whilst provoking audiences to consider choice, dignity, compassion and quality of life through music, comedy, dance, spectacle and shared humanity from London’s Royal Festival Hall to The Melbourne 2017 Comedy Festival.

Other collaborative highlights include Parade at the Conway Hall 2014 that was inspired by the original Ballet Russes Parade, the lost romance of Alain Fournier’s Le Grandes Meaulnes and the melancholic circus of Federico Fellini. Curated with Luke Dixon was a glorious unfolding performance display by about 40 experienced, individualistic artists at their essential best. Flashes of ingenuity and a multiplicity of theatrical forms intertwined in Conway’s atmospheric theatre that is emblazoned with the banner ‘to thine own self be true….’

Jane worked extensively with the contemporary cabaret group Whoopee, choreographing numerous numbers for events at the V & A, Camden Palais, Alantic Bar, Hackney Empire, Cobden Club. These led on to choreographing major bespoke shows including Carnaval seen here at the Blackpool Tower Ballroom.

Nymphaeum at the Porchester Baths London.
