Ayesha Jordan


Ayesha Jordan is a multidisciplinary performance artist who often uses characters and stories to create indelible moments for cerebral and visceral experiences. Jordan’s characters each represent a facet of herself and act as a tool to playfully disguise herself and to uniquely connect with guests. Much of Jordan's work is about audience engagement, bringing participants as close to the work as possible – creating moments, tasks, and prompts allowing the opportunity to engage with the performer, as well as with fellow audience members.

Some of her previous performance events include Shasta Geaux PopCome See My Double D'sEnter & Exit: Playing HouseEnter & Exit: Family ReunionInter 1-to-1, and In the Tube. Other works include video projects Living Room Dance Breaks, Drunk & Famous, as well as a host of other songs and videos.
