Jessica Lauren Elizabeth Taylor is a theater practitioner and activist for social justice. Her practice revolves around performance, text, dialogue, dance and community building for People of Color. Her work centers on themes of ritual, visibility and identity mythology. She is chiefly concerned with ways to dismantle oppressive institutions and the creation of racial equity in art and theater. She strives to address race politics as a performer, maker and artist.
