Larissa Velez-Jackson

Larissa Velez-Jackson (LVJ) is a NYC-based choreographer and multi-platform artist. She uses improvisation as a main tool for research and creation, yielding dance, sound and deep humor and was recently called “an adroit physical comedian” who “seems to be questioning entrenched conventions of contemporary performance” in The New York Times. She has presented work at numerous NYC venues such as: American Realness Festival ’11 and ‘15 at Abrons Arts Center, Chocolate Factory Theater ‘14 and in 2017 at New York Live Arts with Yackez, a collaboration with her husband, Jon Velez-Jackson. In 2016, LVJ has been nominated for a New York Dance and Performance “Bessie” award for Outstanding Emerging Choreographer and was awarded the Foundation for Contemporary Arts, Grant to Artists award.
