Jareen Wee is a contemporary dance artist, choreographer and graduate of the New Zealand School of Dance working in both Australia and Aotearoa. Her work is grounded in honesty and aims to embrace lived experience, often touching on what it means to be human and to welcome the natural rhythms of life. Jareen’s interests lie in collaborating with musicians, visual artists, philosophers and other creators, dissolving the boundaries between disciplines, genres and styles to form meaningful connections and multi-sensorial experiences.
“I believe that every person has the potential in them to find expression and connection to ourselves, to others and to nature through movement and art.”
