Jarrett Siddall
Actor, Dancer, Creature
“The combination of variations of human and animal bodies, instincts, needs, wants, and body language fascinates me— it is where creatures are born.”

Jarrett Siddall is a multidisciplinary artist based in Toronto, working in many different mediums as a dancer, creature actor, physical performer, and actor.

Born in Grande Prairie, AB, Jarrett began training in Ukrainian dance at age ten and joined the prestigious Ukrainian Shumka Dancers in Edmonton after high school. Deciding to pursue dance as a career, he moved to Toronto to attend The School of Toronto Dance Theatre (STDT), where he was awarded the Hnatyshyn Foundation Developing Artist Grant in Contemporary Dance in his first year. After studying ballet, modern, and contemporary styles at STDT, Jarrett joined Toronto Dance Theatre as a full time company member where he danced for five seasons under the direction of Christopher House. As a dancer he now works primarily as an independent artist with many different choreographers and companies including Peggy Baker Dance Projects, Move: The Company, and Frog In Hand.

One of the primary companies Jarrett now works with is Vazari Dance Projects, where he acts as a performer, rehearsal director, and artistic associate. Vazari is a multidisciplinary company; combining dance, circus, and theatre; through which Jarrett has expanded his training studying character work, clown, hand to hand, and tumbling.

As an actor, Jarrett’s expertise lies primarily in using his training and investigation of physicality and movement to portray characters through physical performances. Although always interested in expanding his training and experience, Jarrett is happiest when bringing inhuman things to life with movement.
