An Invitation… needs an audience

An Invitation… takes playfulness very seriously.

We are creating this in this moment.

What happens or doesn’t happen is influenced directly by us.

We play the performer, we play the audience.

We are the show. Is it now?

An Invitation… is about connection, spontaneity, but also about uncertainty.


 An Invitation… is a work born out of The Audience – Research


The research was curiously playful, alive, joyous, imaginative and therefore powerful and human. We discovered a profound way of meeting people.

 “Jo has is a truly distinctive practice. It is deceptively simple, yet from simple parameters she has managed to generate a potentially radical new interface between performers and audience, one based on empathy, similarity and the everyday rather than on “otherness”, competition or confrontation.” Richard Huw Morgan
