Jo’s working practice is an evolving, interactive and a playful approach.
Play has become the very nature of how Jo approaches her body, her voice, her performance roles and her making processes.
The class takes the form of guided improvisations. Initially the warm up is about relationships with our own bodies and voices following individual and inherent desires. The process incorporates a sense of play, listening, responding and investigation that aim to develop an efficient, imaginative and dynamic approach. Jo’s practice is influenced by her eclectic experiences in many dance and theatre performance styles. Working from the inside of the body to the outside she incorporates aspects of release, yoga, manipulation, contact and voice techniques.
The underlying motivations consider honesty in performance, the present moment and the act of creating this together. Currently Jo is researching a new work, entitled Ways of Being Together, for Cardiff Dance Festival Nov 17.
