What is j e l l o ?
J e l l o is a performance series that provides a performance space for artists to experiment, create, risk and try. Making work takes a lot of time, space and money. This is an opportunity to show past work, new work, or work in progress in front of an audience with lighting and production.
*The series does not provide a space for rehearsals. This is solely a space to show your work!
What kind of work do j e l l o artists show?
J e l l o artists have shown works from their past, works in progress and new work. Artists are not limited to a particular ‘style’ of movement or theme. J e l l o caters to individual expression. We want to encourage and challenge j e l l o artists to push the boundaries and expectations of their current work.
Where is j e l l o hosted?
J e l l o is hosted by Links Hall. Artists have the opportunity to work with a lighting/tech designer during the tech rehearsal prior to the show.

Jello is also hosted by Elastic Arts. They are primarily known for hosting music performances but they have recently opened up their space to dance/performance art. This space is opportune for artists that want to work with a “DIY” space.

Who created j e l l o ?
J e l l o was created by Jessica Cornish. The current J e l l o Team includes:
Artistic and Executive Director: Tuli Bera
Artistic Coordinator: Carla Gruby
Technical Director: Brice Hartmann
How are artists compensated?
J e l l o provides artists with video and photo documentation. This can be extremely helpful when applying for grants, residencies, updating artist page/website and performance reels.
How do I sign up to show work at a j e l l o?
Applying for upcoming J e l l o Performances will be done through the J e l l o Portal!
