Jen Johnson has created, performed and taught extensively throughout Toronto’s arts community and internationally. Her unique fusion of theatre and movement has been presented in a variety of independent dance and theatre productions, fringe festivals, performance series, and cabarets and have been called “witty” (The Globe and Mail) and “the essence of performance... she dances with her words and speaks with her motions and it is not possible to separate the two.” (fFIDA Dance Forum). Her expertise in physicality has been sought after by directors for the New Ideas Festival, Toronto Fringe Festival, Handmade Performance, Amicus Productions, Red Letter Theatre, and Reaching Symmetries. For the 2004 Toronto Fringe, she directed and co-created the bouffon-based Fable, which has since been remounted across the country from Halifax to Victoria. Jen is currently in her sixth year teaching Physical Comedy at Humber College’s School of Comedy and is a dance Artist-Instructor with Learning Through the Arts, a program which develops and teaches curriculum subjects through art.
