Zosia Jo is a dance artist with a diverse portfolio career. She received her early training at The Place and a degree from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, graduating in 2008. Zosia has mainly pursued her own choreographic work but also performs for other choreographers as well as in theatre companies. Zosia's work can be characterised by her three main fascinations... One: How dancers find words and integrate natural human speech into their physical expression (and conversely how actors find fluidity and clarity in their physicality.) Two: How audiences and performers relate; how we can encourage an audience to have an equally embodied and holistic response to the work as those who are performing it do. Three: how we might widen audiences and increase participants in dance and offer all the enrichment it brings to more and more people. Zosia is currently based between Wales, London and Cairo, Egypt.
