Jennifer Champion is an emerging face in the spoken word scene. She participated in her first poetry slam in late 2012 and has been a regular voice ever since. Jennifer forms one quarter of the spoken word collective Sekaliwags and is a founding member of the improvised comedic theatre troupe The Improv Company (formerly NUS Improvables) where she trained in improv theatre during her undergraduate years at the National University of Singapore. As an arts practitioner, Jennifer enjoys mixing techniques acquired across different mediums. As a storyteller, she is interested in tracing new paths in familiar territories; capturing vocal snapshots of personas she comes across and rewiring them for diverse audiences.
In 2013, Jennifer was invited to perform in her first spoken word show, She Walks Like AFree Country - an international collaboration and opening act for the Lit Up arts festival. This was quickly followed by Smoke Filled Poets as part of The Smoke-Filled Room organised by The Singapore Forum on Politics and Policy and The Best Object: Women, Power and Purchase in aid of abused women. She has also read at Speak. and Destination:Ink, and competes regularly at Poetry Slam organised by Word Forward.
