Out of Theatre
Jo Lloyd is a dance artist working with choreography as a social encounter. Operating across live performance, film and often in collaboration with visual artists, Lloyd’s work frequently employs duration and circumstance to unearth unexpected behaviours and outcomes.

A commissioning artist for the 2020 Keir Choreographic Award, she recently created the film and live work Archive the Archive for the National Gallery of Australia’s Know My Name: Australian Women Artists 1900 to Now. Her work Overture, 2018–19, received three Green Room Awards and a Helpmann Award nomination. Jo has been a resident artist at The Substation since 2018.
