Jenny Kagan (b. 28.10.1965, Bradford, England) is an artist and lighting designer. In her 20 years of theatre lighting work she has covered a wide range of scales and genres, from experimental new writing to large scale international musicals. In recent years she has been developing a new practice, working with the language of theatre and drawing on the techniques of lighting and stagecraft, to create interactive installation work. Her primary concern is with the curation of the encounter. Much of this work is inspired by her parents’ survival in the Kaunas Ghetto during the Holocaust and reflects on the contemporary relevance of these stories.
