Movement Director, Choreographer, Facilitator.

I work with actors, dancers, singers, and young people - to engage and enhance creative bodies.

Graduate of both Laban (MA Choreography) and Exeter (BA Drama 1st Class HONS), member of the OVERTURE 2017/2018 cohort - New Adventures / Re:Bourne for dance artists working in the community.

Movement is inherent in everything we do - I grasp that concept and run with it, creating a physical language that enhances storytelling and communicates what we often cannot with words.

Review excerpt for English National Opera's 'Paul Bunyan', 2018:

'Top of the class was choreographer, Jasmine Ricketts. Every movement was delightfully understated... immaculately pointed choreography.' - Seen and Heard International
‚Äč
'ENO showcases its chorus in many individual parts; they sound great, but they're also having a ball, smartly choreographed by Jasmine Ricketts.' - The Times

and for English National Opera's 'The Day After', 2017:

"Witnessing the raw energy and physicality of every singer close up, especially as they united to “heave” Phaeton’s fiery chariot towards the sun, was to appreciate their formidable skills anew." **** THE OBSERVER

and Duelling Productions' 'No Quarter', 2016:

"With... remarkable movement direction by Jasmine Ricketts... Manton and his team have created an environment that is not only visually stunning in its own right, but that lends itself incredibly well to a performance of such raw emotion and energy." ***** PERSUED BY BEARS (THEATREBLOGGERS)

and 'A Single Act', 2015:

"... intricately choreographed movement, often overlapping between the actors during the scene transitions. The images created stay with the audience and underline what is being shown, and the mental and emotional fragility of the characters." A YOUNGER THEATRE

"It’s visually stunning and with movement director, Jasmine Ricketts’, beautifully choreographed scene changes, it makes for compelling watching that is utterly intoxicating." THE BARDETTE
