“You carry your emotions in your body… and dancers are some of the most generous artists I think that exist in what we are able to give and that should never be taken for granted.” – Jasmin Lee Sheppard


“It (the journey a dancer has to go on in a performance) can be cathartic but I don’t want it to be traumatic” – Jasmin Lee Sheppard


“How to make a political statement but not at the expense of the dancers wellbeing” – Jasmin Lee Sheppard


Jasmin Lee Sheppard is a dancer and choreographer.


We talk about her works and efforts as an independent artist, bringing alive important stories from the past that re-contextualise our current day. And being aware of those who have come before you. We also focus on building community, taking care when being a choreographer, the minority experience.
