Jade Lorna Sullivan
Born in Vienna and raised in England, Jade-Lorna started working as a professional dancer at the age of fifteen. By 18, she had choreographed and danced a world tour for rock royalty Roxy Music, followed by another world tour for Bryan Ferry himself. Between travel dates, her commercial dance career began to flourish in the UK and can list names such as Taylor Swift, Britney Spears, Backstreet Boys and Sir Paul McCartney as artists she has had the pleasure of collaborating with. Most notably, the music video for Macy Gray's 'White Man' went internationally viral. Choreographed and performed by Jade, it showcased a unique fusion of Brazilian capoeira, jive, popping and the Hakka war dance, with heavy Pina Bausch influences, making it to news outlets such as CNN. Her talents caught the eye of some of the world's most celebrated creatives such as David La Chapelle and Mick Rock which then gave her freedom to play with gritty, narrative-based roles and begin telling stories through movement on screen. This is where her love of acting was realized; never having had any official dance training, it had always been her performance and emotion that had shone throughout her work. It was only when she moved to Los Angeles, after obtaining a work visa as an 'Alien of Extraordinary Ability in the Arts', that she finally put words to those narratives.
