jacqueline van de geer

interdisciplinary arts

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.
