Jenny Sealey

CEO/Artistic Director, Graeae Theatre

Jenny Sealey, Graeae’s Artistic Director since 1997, has pioneered a new theatrical language and aesthetics of artistic access experimenting with bilingual BSL and English, prerecorded BSL, creative captioning, in ear/ live audio description methods.

Two, The Fall of the House of Usher, peeling, Bent, Blasted, Romeo and Juliet (Japan and Bangladesh) and The House of Bernarda Alba are examples of this ‘aesthetic’, which influences all of the company’s work and is ingrained in Graeae’s award winning purpose built rehearsal and office space in the heart of Shoreditch.

Jenny co-directed the London 2012 Paralympic Opening Ceremony, alongside Bradley Hemmings (GDIF).
