Jasmine Ellis is a Canadian choreographer and film director based out of Munich, Germany. A graduate of Etobicoke School of the Arts, The School of Toronto Dance Theatre and Codarts Rotterdam Conservatory, she has worked professionally in dance since 2006. Ellis is regularly awarded grants for independent productions, in addition to commissions for creating stage works nationally and internationally. Ellis’s uncategorised approach to movement, body language, text and music is the basis of her artistic approach in which humour, vulnerability and familiarity are woven together to create unexpected worlds. An award–winning film director, Ellis is the Artistic Director of Bad Posture Productions. As a very active member of the Munich independent dance scene, Ellis heads the Bad Lemons Project, which promotes a lively and collaborative community through professional training, training exchange and research projects.
