Since 2002, she has created 15 original works, commissioned by companies and independent performers. In 2008, Durning was the recipient of The Alpert Award for Choreography. Jeanine’s current solo performance experiment, "inging," was first publicly performed in 2010 in Amsterdam and has since been invited to theaters, studios, museums, galleries and rooms in Berlin, Amsterdam, Leuven (BE), Chambersburg (PA), Minneapolis (MN), and NYC.

Over the years, Jeanine has had the pleasure to work with many choreographers, among them, including David Dorfman, Susan Rethorst, Bebe Miller. Martha Clarke, Jon Kinzel, Zvi Gotheiner, Lance Gries, and Chris Yon. Jeanine has performed in several choreographed ensemble works by Deborah Hay since 2005. She is currently involved in Hay’s work with Motion Bank, an interactive archival project of the Forsythe Company, which includes her performance adaptation of the solo No Time to Fly. Jeanine also acts as consultant to the Motion Bank team on Hay’s choreographic work.

Jeanine has an ongoing teaching practice, facilitating classes in movement and choreographic practices, and is regularly invited to advise the work of other makers. More recently, she has been on faculty at SNDO and MTD (Amsterdam Theaterschool), HZT (Inter-University Centre for Dance- Berlin), Laboratory for Contemporary Dance Practice (Vaganova Academy, St. Petersburg), NYU Tisch School of the Arts and has co-taught a workshop on choreographic scoring with Forsythe Company member Liz Waterhouse as part of the German Dance Education Biennale (Frankfurt).
