Her background includes deep research into theater, somatics, improvisation, film, Deep Listening, Laban Movement Analysis, Body-Mind CenteringⒸ, interspecies relationships, equine studies, Authentic Movement and eco-performance. Much of Josa-Jones’s solo performance work arises from her own experience of being gender non-conforming, and movement explorations of the deeply complex architecture of identity and expression. Her writings on movement and dance have been published in Contact Quarterly. Her book, Our Horses, Ourselves: Discovering the Common Body, was published by Trafalgar Square Books.
