Jeremy specialises in devised theatre. Since 1999 he has been a regular collaborator with Forced Entertainment, appearing in over a dozen of their shows and performing all over the world. He appears in the occasional play, like Swedish poet Niklas Rådström's Monsters about the Bulger killing, brilliantly directed by Christopher Haydon. He’s more often to be found in mainland Europe, working with people like Flemish choreographer and film maker Wim Vandekeybus, for whom he has starred in two feature films: Galloping Mind and Monkey Sandwich, the latter being selected for the Venice Film Festival.
Largely responsible for this avoidance of conventional theatre is his extraordinary training at the University of Exeter Drama Department in the mid 1980s, where he studied the techniques of the great European theatre-makers like Brecht and Meyerhold [and was turned on to the work of companies like the Wooster Group].
His career-long dedication to work which pushes at the boundaries between theatre, art and dance has earned him passing mentions in several books on contemporary theatre. He features on the cover and in the text of Claire MacDonald’s fascinating new book Utopia: Three Plays for a Postdramatic Theatre.
