Jill Kroesen is a performer and writer who was active in No Wave rock bands and avant-garde productions. She has produced original music theater works and written for many independent publications.


After studying with Robert Ashley and Terry Riley at Mills, Kroesen moved to New York City. There, she worked briefly in Rhys Chatham's group before focusing on her own musical theater works and performance art works, presented in 1979 at Public Arts International/Free Speech. Other roles include Robert Ashley's early-1980s opera-for-TV project Perfect Lives, and her own recording for Lovely Music, Stop Vicious Cycles. Kroesen's work in graphic and visual arts led to her receiving a video fellowship from the New York Foundation for the Arts in 1985, after which she continued her work as a video engineer.[1][2][3][4]
