Jenna Jalonen (FI) aka triplejay was born in Finland, educated in Hungary and currently based in Belgium and Hungary. After her studies in classical ballet at the Finnish National Opera Ballet School and Hungarian Dance Academy in Budapest, she changed to the field of contemporary dance and performing arts. She has danced and collaborated with several international companies and choreographers since 2010 such as Eva Duda Dance Co., Central Europe Dance Theater, Kubilai Khan Investigations, Kwaad bloed/Ugo Dehaes, fABULEUS, Thierry de Mey, Theater Bremen, Máté Mészáros, Untamed Productions, Notch Company/Oriane Varak and HODWORKS. Together with Beatrix Simkó their production Long time no see! was part of the official program at Festival d’Avignon 2018 and was one of the selected productions at Aerowaves Twenty19 Spring Forward. She teaches and is developing triplewave, a movement practice inviting the dancer to go on a trip –a meditative and physical journey– using the mechanics of a wave in the body through different dance styles and dynamics in the body. In her artistic work she is continuously researching the extreme physicality of the conscious and unconscious body, the dead body in movement. Outside of studio and stage, Jenna is the co-founder and driver of Collective Dope.
