Since graduating from The Victorian College Of the Arts in 1992, Jenny has developed a strong design aesthetic, driven by her collaborations and the space they find themselves in.
Her work as a lighting and set designer has been experienced nationally and internationally, most recently with Kamila Andini’s The Seen and The Unseen for Asia TOPA (Jakarta, Singapore and Melbourne), Sydney Chamber Opera’s The Howling Girls for Tokyo Festival World Competition 2019 and X-Risk, Kuopio Finland, collaborating with Madeleine Flynn, Tim Humphrey, Pekka Mäkinen, and Johanna Tuukkanen.
She has designed lights for Paul Kelly and Paul Grabowsky’s Meet Me In The Middle of the Air, Arts Centre Melbourne’s For Those About to Rock, Dark Mofo’s Night Mass (2018) and Funeral Party (2016), Back to Back Theatre and The Theatre of Speed, Finucane and Smith’s The Rapture, and Shanghai MiMI, Circus Oz Aurora and From The Ground Up, Rimini Protokol- 100% Melbourne and 100% Darwin, and Federation Square’s Light In Winter.
Her work for Fraught Outfit’s Exodus II, Prue Lang’s Stellar, and Sandra Parker’s Out of Light were nominated for the Green Room Best Lighting award. Jo Lloyd’s Overture, Jacob Boehme’s Blood on the Dance Floor and Jodee Mundy’s Imagined Touch received Green Room Awards for Best Production, for which Jenny realised both set and lighting design.
