Jasmin Vardimon | Jasmin Vardimon Company Jasmin Vardimon Company Jasmin Vardimon Artistic Director "Vardimon is a powerful voice in physical theatre and the daring movements she creates leave scars on the memory" THE GUARDIAN "Jasmin Vardimon seems poised to be the next big popular British export" NEW YORK TIMES Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon Jasmin Vardimon In 2013 Jasmin Vardimon received the International Theatre Institute Award for Excellence in Dance in recognition of her choreographic work over recent years. A leading force in British dance theatre for nearly twenty years, she has built a reputation for challenging, exciting and visually stunning dance and continues to add to the body of critically acclaimed, artistically respected yet accessible work both for the company she formed in 1997 and for some of the leading arts institutions she works with across the world. Born and raised on a Kibbutz in central Israel, she was a member of the Kibbutz Dance Company for five years and in 1995 was awarded the prestigious British Council 'On the Way to London' Choreography Award. This was to take her on a journey that saw her move to the UK permanently in the late nineties. At the same time she founded Jasmin Vardimon Company (previously Zbang) for which she has created some of her most memorable work. An Associate Artist at Sadler's Wells since 2006, Jasmin has also been recognised with the positions of Associate Artist at The Place in 1998 and at Yorkshire Dance as a Partner from 1999 - 2005. Jasmin has also been commissioned to choreograph for the Royal Opera House (Tannhäuser, 2010 & 2016), Lyric Opera of Chicago (Tannhäuser, 2015) and for ROH2's OperaShots season with composer Graham Fitkin at the Linbury Studio (Home, 2012). In 2013, Jasmin took on the role of Guest Artistic Director for the first year of the newly formed National Youth Dance Company (NYDC). Jasmin has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Wolverhampton since September 2011. She developed a Higher Education programme for dancers and actors, led by her company as a Postgraduate Certificate at Royal Holloway University London and in 2012 launched JV2, a full-time Professional Development Diploma at her company's home-base in Ashford, and in 2016 a brand new JVIntensive training programme. In 2014 she received an honorary doctorate from the University of London.

Breakin' Convention goes Back to the Lab with Jasmin Vardimon
At Sadler's Wells Theatre, Breakin' Convention has been conducting its own experiments, mixing choreographic compounds and harvesting the DNA for the next generation of hip hop dancers. For the first part of the course our makeshift laboratory was a dance studio and the head professor working alongside Jonzi D was Jasmin Vardimon, Associate Artist at Sadler's Wells Theatre and award winning choreographer. Jasmin has been an Associate Artist at Sadler's Wells since 2006. Prior to that she was an Associate Artist at The Place in 1998 and a Yorkshire Dance Partner from 1999-2005. With such an impressive résumé it was only right to appoint her as the leader for this experiment. "Jonzi asked me to facilitate workshops to allow young hip hop choreographers to examine the way that they're working and to provide more tools for them to expand and develop the genre that they're working in," Jasmin explains. "In my process of creation the music comes last, which is somehow unusual in the dance world," Jasmin says. "One of the hardest things is making sure that the material, the end product, doesn't then become contemporary, that we steer in the direction of Jasmin's approach and merge the two together as opposed to scrap everything we learn in hip hop and go down this contemporary hip hoppish way," said Simeon Qsyea. However, Jasmin insists that what she teaches won't encroach on their hip hop disciplines. "I asked them to let go of what they have because they have that, it's not as though they're going to lose it: put it to the side and try and do other things, dig in and find out what else they have in themselves so they can use," she said. In fact, Jasmin has worked with hip hop artists before, and has been known to pass through Brixton battle cyphers. What will come out of the Back to the Lab course as a result are some unique creations: "I always find that mixed marriages are bringing the most beautiful children. When you mixed art forms that's when new things happen," says Jasmin.

Jasmin Vardimon Company Makes Peak Performances Debut | Ellen Jacobs Associates

Pina Bausch has left her imprint both visibly and invisibly on many contemporary choreographers including Jasmin Vardimon, whose London-based troupe Jasmin Vardimon Company makes its American debut (if you don't count a blink-of-an-eye stint in Texas) at Peak Performances with "Freedom" (definitely an American premiere), April 18-21.
"Freedom," which received its world premiere at Sadler's Wells in London, where Vardimon is an associate artist, questions the notion of "freedom" itself. What does it mean? How does it relate to its opposite: imprisonment? The dance asks these questions through a series of enchanting tableaux that include dancing fireflies, wolves in yoga pants, plants that transform into snakes, a surfer who mistakes his girlfriend's body for a surf board, a ballerina who initially mistakes industrial tubing for wings and a swan with an attitude-and altitude-problem. It is surreal, whimsical, nightmarish, witty and fun. Vardimon also serves as the work's sound designer. JASMIN VARDIMON (ARTISTIC DIRECTOR), who was born and raised on a Kibbutz in central Israel, joined the Kibbutz Dance Company, and in 1995 won a British Council 'On the Way to London' Choreography Award. She moved to London in 1997 where she founded Jasmin Vardimon Company (previously Zbang). She has been an associate artist at Sadler's Wells since 2006. Previously, she was an associate artist at The Place in 1998 and a Yorkshire Dance Partner from 1999-2005.
