Jo Cork is an independent dance and film artist, drawing on exploration of the human condition and experience to create her work. Having completed training at Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts (LIPA) in 2009, she has been based in London since 2012. She is interested in the territory between choreographic practice and film composition and in finding effective ways to use digital formats of work to bring contemporary dance to broader audiences and more diverse venues.
Her dance film, Sensate, toured festivals, screening at 15 events across Europe, America and Asia, and won an international award for best film in category at Videomovimiento Festival in Colombia. Her follow up series of shorts, The Intersection Series, has been shown in dance venues and art gallery settings in the UK and Germany. Her most recent project, Calibrate, received funding from Arts Council England and has been supported by various dance organisations and universities in the UK.
