Zosia Jo Dowmunt (UK):
Zosia Jo began dancing at The Place, London and went on to train at Northern School of Contemporary Dance. After graduating, in 2008, 
she started Joon Dance, who have changed the face of dance in West Wales, introducing professional contemporary dance and break dance to the rural communities there. Alongside her community dance practice Zosia undertook interdisciplinary training with Dance Research Studio’s Speaking Dancer Program. This, and her experience working as a movement director and performer with theatre companies such as Torch Theatre (Wales) Enormous Yes (Glasgow) and Dread Falls (London), has engaged Zosia in a creative enquiry around the fine line between dance and theatre. As a performer Zosia has worked with Nutshell Dance, Sean Tuan John, Tanja Ramen, Kitsch’n’Sync Collective, James Finnemore, Nai Walker and in dance for a camera work Better To Have Loved with Shannon Walsh. Zosia’s choreographic work has been performed at Torch Theatre, The Place, Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe Festivals, Blue Elephant Theatre. In her first full-length performance work, The Applause Project, Zosia experimented with the act of applause as a method for interaction between audience and performer. In her recent solo, Herstory, Zosia draws on her additional experience to create a narrative driven work blending text and dance. After choreographing for Cairo based Contemporary Dance Nights, supported by British Council, Zosia intends to continue her work in Egypt and pursue more cross-cultural exchange.
