Jessica Lauren Elizabeth Taylor is a theater practitioner, social justice advocate and community organizer. Her roots are in the Southern United States, born in Mississippi and bred in Florida. Taylor’s work manifests through performance, text, dialogue, dance and community building for Black People and 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. Taylor runs and hosts the salon on race politics and race relations ‘Black in Berlin.’ Her current project, Muttererde is an interview series that calls for femme forms of ancestral history and historical imagination on the legacies of individual matriarchial lineages.
