Jasmin Vardimon
"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
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), 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).
She is the recipient of numerous awards including: the Dimitrije Parlic Award, Serbia's most prestigious award for Choreography (2013), the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Award for Excellence in International Dance (2013); the Jerwood Foundation's 'Changing Stages' Award (2004); the Jerwood Choreography Award (2000); a nomination for Best Female Artist at the Critics' Circle National Dance Awards (2003); The London Arts Board 'New Choreographers' Award (1998); The Colette Littman Scholarship Award (1997); The Havatzeleth Foundation Scholarship (1997 & 1995); and the America-Israel Foundation Choreography Scholarship (1989 & 1991).
Her company is regularly funded by the Art Council England, and her work to her company has been commissioned by many leading arts institutions and funding bodies such as Sadler's Wells, The Lowry, La Comète (France), Brighton Dome, National Theatre Studio, The Place, Hall for Cornwall, South East Dance, Take Art, Soho Theatre, Gardner Arts, Lichfield Garrick, Laban Centre, Welsh Independent Dance, Yorkshire Dance, DanceXchange, Esmee Fairbairn, Jerwood Foundation and The Oval House.
Jasmin Vardimon Company tours nationally and internationally performing at high profile theatres throughout the UK, across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the USA.
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 diploma at Royal Holloway University London and in 2012 launched JV2, a full-time certificate course at her company's home base in Ashford. In July 2014 she receives an honorary doctorate from the University of London.

Revisiting some of the most striking moments selected from the company's repertoire over the past decade, Vardimon integrates new choreographic material with live video and animation to create a new and exhilarating production stamped with her daring theatricality and contemporary social relevance. YESTERDAY premiered at Brighton Dome in 2008 and has toured the UK and internationally, including a sell-out run at The Peacock Theatre - Sadler's Wells' West End London venue.
Jasmin Vardimon Company (JVC) is one of Britain's most pioneering physical dance theatre companies, creating work that excites both the eye and the mind by pushing the boundaries of human physicality whilst engaging in universal, contemporary themes that strike an emotional chord.
Vardimon's powerful art of story-telling integrates multiple layers of communication - combining dance, movement, video, animation, text and music. Her sharp instincts and keen observations of human behaviour deliver beautifully precise characterisation, powerfully brought to life by her company of versatile dancers.
...
Associate Artist at Sadler's Wells since 2006, Vardimon has won a number of international awards, including the prestigious Jerwood Choreography Award in 2000.

As a performer, she was nominated 'Best Female Artist' at the 2003 Critics Circle National Dance Award.
