Jeanette Bednar (she/her) is a NJ/NYC based artist and BFA Acting graduate from Montclair State University.
As a creator she aims to make innovative art that challenges the way people think and move through the world. She is particularly interested in physical theatre and has extensive Viewpoints and Suzuki training.
When she isn't acting, you can find Jeanette visiting her roots in North Carolina, training for her next half marathon, painting & drawing, doing yoga, or obsessing over her plants and her golden doodle, Nola.
After graduating into a pandemic and healing from a life-altering surgery for a rare stomach condition, Jeanette is excited to start creating again. She is currently developing an auto-biographical short film about her battle with Median Arcuate Ligament Syndrome, through which she hopes to shed light on the isolating world of invisible illness.
In early 2021 Jeanette produced, directed and performed a movement-piece, Emit, which explores loneliness in all its complexity. The project is embedded, below.
In the summer of 2022 Jeanette will be filming Quarter Life Crisis, a web-series by writer and fellow MSU alum, Raven Smith.
