Biography

Performance Artist

Josie is a freelance performer, dancer and choreographer currently living in Christchurch, New Zealand.

She values embodiment and somatic practices and is inspired by the post modern dance movement of 1960’s New York. Her choreography uses movement to evoke human empathy and a shared experience of time, space, and the body. She attempts to demystify contemporary dance by pairing back theatrical devices to reveal process and context.

Josie has been an artist in The Tiny Festival, Performance Art Week Aotearoa, Festival of Transitional Architecture, NZ Fringe Festival, Auckland Fringe Festival, Tempo Dance Festival and Asia Tree New Wave Festival.

She often collaborates with her partner Kosta Bogoievski. Their projects together include: ‘Dance Danced Dancing’ (awarded Best Dance of Auckland Fringe 2018)  and ‘Josie and Kosta’s Dance Show’.

Her solo work Josie’s Solo was awarded Best Dance of Auckland Fringe in 2017.

Josie has been an artist in residence at SpaceVac in Seoul, South Korea, Healing Hills Art collective in Morni Hills, India and The Physics Room in Christchurch, New Zealand.

As a performer Josie has worked with artists Olive Bieringa, Michael Parmenter, Zahra Killeen Chance, Jennifer Lacey and Wally Cardona, and Christine Bonansea.
