Jo Blake

Interdisciplinary Performer

I’m Jo Blake, and I’m a lover of words, bodies and performance. Something of a shapeshifter, I move between storytelling, dance, theatre, psychophysical acting and somatics. Myth, fairytale, psyche and soul underpin my approach to performance, as does a deep relationship to the feminine. I am interested in the untold and the exiled… performance as resistance, reclamation, cultural therapeutics and spiritual activism. 

Curiosity leads me, along with a desire to share this passion with as many people and communities as possible, in a wide variety of settings. This website is a repository of my creative projects. Please take a look around and get in touch… I’d love to hear from you.

Latest Update: The Living Tree

I had a dream a few weeks ago about a house built around a living tree. It’s one of those dreams that was filled with a blissful, numinous quality. Like most people, I have walked through several dream houses in my sleep over the years, and this was one of the best so far. The presence of the living tree feels like a gift… the symbol of hope after this time of wintering, as I wrote about in July.
