Jens is a multi-disciplinary theatre-maker whose work centers on issues of social justice. His teaching is built on experiential learning practices. Time is not spent attempting to transfer instructor knowledge to the student through lectures or handouts. Instead, Jens creates exercises and environments that allow each student to uncover the unique knowledge that is already inside them, waiting to be released.
