Jenni Large


JENNI LARGE is a dancer, performer, teacher and award-winning choreographer based on palawa country in lutruwita/Tasmania. Driven by the personal, political and transformational forces of embodiment, Jenni seeks joy and connection through her practice. Since graduating from WAAPA in 2010 Jenni has collaborated extensively throughout Australia and performed across the world with artists and companies including; Tasdance (2012-13 and 2019-present performing works by Adam Wheeler, Jo Lloyd, Larissa McGowan, Anna Smith, Byron Perry & Tanja Liedtke), Dancenorth (2015-2020 performing works by Kyle Page, Amber Haines, Lee Serle, Alisdair Macindoe, Lucy Guerin, Gideon Obarzanek, Stephanie Lake, Ross McCormack and Jo Lloyd) as well as Legs On The Wall, Leigh Warren & Dancers/SA Opera, GUTS Dance, Ashleigh Musk, Aimee Smith, Sue Peacock and Isabella Stone.
Jenni’s choreographic work is a cross-section of dancing, performance/endurance art, object and sculpture. Centering materials to subvert relational narratives she is transfixed on unpacking socio-political themes that impact women. Her works imbue a playful/serious sexual undertone, utilising the tropes of popular-culture, horror and comedy as an entry point for dialogue around stigma. Jenni’s recent works include; ‘Faux Mo House Party’ - Mona Foma 2022, ‘Wet Hard’ - winner of the 2022 Keir Choreographic People’s Choice Award, ‘Body Body Commodity’ - Mona Foma 2023 and ‘Phantom Femme Fatale’ - The Old Fitz & Desert Festival 2023, ’S U C K E R’ - Sydney Dance Company’s New Breed and recently Jenni was a recipient of a Chloe Munro Fellowship and Asia Link Singapore Arts Now exchange with Tasdance.
