Jasmin Vardimon Company

Jasmin Vardimon Company was founded in London in 1997 and is dedicated to the choreography of Artistic Director, Jasmin Vardimon – Associate Artist of Sadler’s Wells since 2006.

Renowned for her uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style, combining physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance, Vardimon accentuates her work with an acute observation of human behaviour. With sharp instincts and provocative daring, she has developed an individual choreographic voice, distinguished by her beautifully detailed movement, insightful humour and engaging drama. The company’s works are widely accessible through their exposure of human experience, social relevance, high quality, passion, skill and commitment.

The company tours nationally and internationally, performing at high-profile theatres throughout the UK, across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the USA.

In 2012, the company moved into its new creative home – The Jasmin Vardimon Production Space in Ashford, Kent. A cultural centre dedicated to the company's creative research and future productions, educational residencies and multi-disciplinary artistic study, the JV Production Space aims to encourage the growth of a cultural legacy in Ashford, increasing its capacity to import and export high quality performers.
