Jennifer Tang, award-winning theatre-maker and director, has been named the next Genesis Fellow and Associate Director at the Young Vic.

Jennifer, whose practice spans new writing, devised work and theatre with music, as well as extensive experience of working with communities and young people, will take over the role in April 2020 from Nadia Latif.

The Genesis Fellowship, a two-year grant supported by the Genesis Foundation, enables the recipient to develop their craft as a theatre director whilst working closely with the Young Vic’s Artistic Director. Previous Genesis Fellows include Nadia Latif, Gbolahan Obisesan, Natalie Abrahami, Carrie Cracknell and Joe Hill-Gibbins.

Jennifer says: ‘I first fell in love with the Young Vic in 2010, when the theatre gave me my very first opportunity as a young director through their brilliant ‘Taking Part’ department. I’m so thrilled to be part of this building in a new phase of its life; to help programme and champion a diverse range of work from exceptional artists, and to support the development of the next generation of directors, storytellers and audiences through the Director’s Program. It’s such an honour to be given this opportunity; I can’t wait to get started.’
