More In Common – Youth Music Theatre UK

Jo directed, devised and choreographed More In Common for Youth Music Theatre UK. The work was inspired by the life and work of murdered MP Jo Cox. The movement and music were created in response to the ideas¬†of the young cast, who explored themes of loneliness, the refugee crisis and dispossession. The work was created and performed in Halifax close to Jo Cox’s former constituency of Batley and Spen.
