Jasmin Vardimon Company

I have had the privilege and pleasure of working with Jasmin Vardimon and company for 10 years. As someone who has designed costumes for many styles of contemporary dance, what I particularly enjoy with Jasmin’s work, denoted as Dance Theatre, is the challenging and fulfilling combination of character, narrative and motion.

Medusa

A reflection on the powerful feminine symbol of Medusa, the myth and its various connotations in our contemporary life. This production not only deconstructs the myth but also looks forward, exploring Medusa’s aquatic symbolism in the environmental future of our seas. 


Created in 2018 at the Institute for the Arts, Barcelona

Pinocchio

With insightful humour, engaging drama and an acute observation of behaviour Pinocchio takes audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery through the parameters of Collodi’s timeless and beloved fable.

Created in Ashford, Kent, 2016

Maze

An immersive work created for the Margate Winter Gardens, 2015

“Philosophically this idea of choice is central to the work; MAZE is an offer to engage, to play, to look and to share as much or as little as you’re willing to in a cathedral of foam…”  WRITING ABOUT DANCE

Park

Park is an urban oasis, a place of refuge from ordinary life where eight characters play, fight, fall in love and learn to survive. Their stories intertwine creating a modern day fairytale that is alternately sharp, funny and cruel.

Originally created in 2005, a restaging in 2014.
