Her recent work Clap Hands (2016) and the companion work Swivel Spot (2017) have lead her on an inquiry toward the uncanny and maintenance of care. Rosenblit has collaborated with artists including Young Jean Lee, Ryan McNamara, Yvonne Meier, Sasa Asentic, A.K. Burns, Kerry Downey, Anne Imhof, Miguel Gutierrez, and currently Simone Aughterlony. Rosenblit is currently researching Stand In, a new work centering around the game of chess to harness the battle, protection, creating a court and the operation of focus between opposing sides. Recent works focus on an improvisational approach to choreographic thought, locating ways of being together amidst impossible spaces.

Jen performs in Age & Beauty Part 3.
