Jacqueline van de Geer was born in the Netherlands and immigrated to Canada in 2005. She holds degrees in both visual and performance arts. Growing up in Rotterdam, a scarred place that was accidentally bombed twice during World War II, imparted her with a ‘do a lot with almost nothing’-approach to her practice. She works in Europe and Canada as a performer and theatrical DJ. Since coming to Montréal, Jacqueline has started to write short plays and create solo works that are bilingual, non-linear, and somewhat dada-inspired. In her performances she hopes to create a space where participants can open up to a collective experience: to share, to exchange, to be touched, and to speak out. Her work focuses on issues of intimacy and reconnection.
