Jo Fong is an award-winning, middle-aged, provincial, international artist. Her career began in dance and led to collaborations with DV8 Physical Theatre, Rosas, Rambert Dance Company, National Theatre Wales, Welsh National Opera, National Theatre (London), Battersea Arts Centre, National Dance Company Wales, Quarantine and more. Jo’s independent practice puts difference and ideas around belonging or forming community at the heart of events. Cultivated through face-to-face contact, Jo brings people together, it’s about connection and how we communicate or live together. In this digital weariness, Jo is researching ways to preserve intimacy without proximity. Touring productions include An Invitation..., Neither Here Nor There created and performed with artist Sonia Hughes, The Rest of Our Lives with circus artist George Orange and Ways of Being Together, a mass collaborative project most recently presented at Chinese Arts Now Festival, Shoreditch Town Hall. Jo is a Peilot Associate Artist with Chapter, Associate Artist with Chinese Arts Now and Research Associate with SE Dance. She has presented performances at British Dance Edition and British Council Edinburgh Showcase.
