About

"An artistic alchemist walking among us." –The Austin Chronicle

Jaclyn Pryor (b.1977, Evanston, Illinois) is a physical theater artist, educator, and performance studies scholar who is deeply committed to these practices as sites of research and experiment. For more than 20 years, Jaclyn has been making performance both inside and outside of traditional theater spaces–often working site-specifically and engaging the natural and built environment as source material. Their work pushes the limits of the physical body in performance, plays with the materiality of time and space, re-imagines the audience-event relationship, and expands our understanding of what is possible in live performance and in our everyday lives.
