Jane Turner has worked as a choreographer in dance, theatre, commercial and experimental contexts since forming her own dancetheatre co. TURNING WORLDS in 1990. For the company she has created and performed in a diverse range of works that have toured the UK and Europe. Much of her work explores femaleness: biology, representations, expression, through interdisciplinary practice BABY (ICA 2003) and that increasingly experiments with new, technological integrations BIRDS, BODIES (2005). An interest in how the world works underpins an aesthetic that embraces the epic in the everyday, interconnections between the personal, cultural and scientific. Since 1999 she has been actively investigating the science-art interface with scientists, artists and new interactive technologies. This work is contributing to a practice-as-research PhD she is pursuing at University College Chichester. Jane has been teaching on the BA at LMU since 1998 drawing on a professional career working across performance contexts: theatre & performance: theatre nomad and increasingly for new burlesque events; film and TV commercials and broadcasts; Carmen (BBC2), Soho Square (Channel 4), Goldeneye, (general release), and on international collaborations.
