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: Daffodils and New Things

Samhain, then Christmas, then Imbolc came and went, and still a newsletter did not get written. But now, as the daffodils nod at me from the verges, the time for thoughts to constellate into words has finally arrived! Phew. It takes me a while, sometimes.

New Course: Holding the Tail of the Wolf 

After much planning, I am delighted to be offering a new year-long storytelling course in collaboration with Chris Salisbury of Wildwise down in Devon. It will draw on many approaches developed through the Body, Breath and Story course I ran from 2019 – 2023, and will extend further to meet with land, ceremony and the wild. We also have some incredible guest storytelling practitioners to work with the group over the year.
