More details Siobhan Davies Studios

Jo Fong is an artist who lives and working in Cardiff. Her work reflects the need in these times for people to come together. Her practice has been informed by notions of inclusivity, participation and is about being present, this moment, communication, listening, face to face encounters and the idea of forming community.

Jo’s working practice is an evolving, interactive and playful approach, incorporating aspects of release, yoga, contact and voice techniques. As a language she has been working on self-generating scores, simple instructions/games that play out, making connection, encouraging awareness, range, presence, multiple outcomes and simple acts like noticing.

The Rest of Our Lives 

Created and Performed by Jo Fong and George Orange

The Rest of Our Lives is an eclectic, spontaneous, predictable and random middle-aged decline. George and Jo have been pondering upon how it’s all going to go from here.

Hopefully hopeful The Rest of Our Lives will probably be too long or it might be a bit sudden and far too short and the last bit is likely to be a bit crap.

Time is on our side, but life is passing us by.

We’re only at the beginning of the end.

Created and performed by Jo Fong and George Orange

Supported by the Rural Touring Dance Initiative, Fieldwork, The Place Theatre, China Plate, Chapter and Arts Council of Wales.
