ABOUT

Jo Parkes is a freelance dance/video artist and teacher. 

 

Under the name Mobile Dance, Parkes has delivered innovative participatory dance projects for 15 years. 

 

She works around the world with groups of professional and non-professional performers on custom-designed projects, which use dance and storytelling to explore issues of concern to the group. She is a “documentary dance-maker”. She often makes work for public spaces and for film/video.

 

Mobile: capable of moving or being moved about readily; capable of changing quickly from one state or condition to another.

 

The aim of Mobile Dance is to bring dance to groups who might not normally experience it both as audiences and as creator/performers. Thus Mobile Dance seeks to support people in achieving mobility – in their bodies, in their development and in their relationship to their environment. 

 

Jo is a Fulbright scholar, with a first-class degree in English/German literature from Oxford University and a Master of Fine Arts in choreography from the University of California, Los Angeles (World Arts and Cultures Program). In 2009, Jo’s project Postcards from Berlin won a Kinder zum Olymp award. She is a recipient of the Bonnie Bird New Choreography Award.

 

Jo is based in Berlin (D) and Wolverhampton (UK).
