Jessie Rose McCall

Jessie Rose McCall


Jessie McCall is a queer, female, pākehā movement artist based in Tāmaki Makaurau who is interested in the collision of the mundane with the transcendent. Her work harnesses visual design, sound, and distinct movement vocabularies to build darkly humorous worlds that are slippery, disruptive, and human - honouring low-culture as a vehicle of the profound.

Jessie has created commissioned work for Footnote Dance Company, Auckland Arts Festival, SPLORE Festival, Auckland Pride Festival, UNITEC, alongside an independent choreographic career including I Get So Emotional Baby (2022), Daybreak Estate (2020, 2022), Cover Lover (2016), Tassel Me This (2015, Winner Best of Fest), and The Way We Fall (2014). She is the co-founder of SOFT. co with Rose Philpott, creating and performing HEALR (2016, 2018) and INFLATED REBEL (2021).

Jessie has held the positions of Artistic Curator for Short + Sweet Dance Festival NZ and Festival Producer for Tempo Dance Festival. Jessie teaches Creative Practice on the UNITEC Dance Programme.

Experimental Choreographic Resident, 2024
