Jeremy Neideck is a performance maker who has worked between Australia and Korea for over a decade, performing for LATT Children’s Theatre and undertaking residencies with organisations such as The National Art Studio, Modern Dance Festival, and the MIZY Center for Cultural Exchange. Jeremy has been the recipient of scholarships from Aphids, The Australia-Korea Foundation, and JUMP and in 2013 was an Asialink Resident at The National Changgeuk Company of Korea where he furthered his study of pansori (traditional Korean opera). Jeremy was also recipient of the Brisbane City Council Lord Mayor’s Fellowship for Young and Emerging Artists, allowing him to undertake professional development in transcultural practice in Boston and performance training in New York before travelling to Singapore to intern with The Necessary Stage. As a composer, Jeremy has worked with Imaginary Theatre, Zen Zen Zo, and 23rd Productions, with his design for Fleur Elise Noble’s 2 Dimensional Life of Her described as “superb” by the New York Times.
Jeremy directed and co-wrote 지하 Underground with Nathan Stoneham (Motherboard Productions) enjoying sell-out seasons as part of Metro Arts Independents, Brisbane Festival, World Theatre Festival and the HiSeoul Festival. Jeremy’s experimental dance work Deluge: 물의기억 premiered at the Brisbane Festival in 2014 after a 3-year period of development with an international team before going on to tour the 2014 Seoul International Dance Festival, Osan Arts Centre and Seoul Art Space_Mullae, and was invited by the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture to present it in 2015 at Namsan Drama Center as a public memorial for the 304 lives lost in the sinking of the MV Sewol. In 2016, Jeremy wrote and directed 심청 <Shimchong>: Daughter Overboard!, an adaptation of Oh Tae Suk’s reimagining of the traditional Korean tale of Shimchong that combined pansori, poetry, and political satire in a work of physical theatre that premiered at WTF in Brisbane.
Jeremy holds a Phd from Queensland University of Technology, where he currently teaches across the disciplines of drama, music, and dance. Jeremy also coordinates the first year of QUT’s BFA Acting program where he is the head of the movement department. Jeremy regularly consults on the architecture and facilitation of collaborative projects and programs of institutional and community transformation.
