#132 Joseph Simons – 100 Years of the History of Dance………………..

Have a play date with your body as I talk with Joseph Simons, dancer, choreographer, performer and co-creator of the high acclaimed and must-see Fringe World show ‘100 Years of The History Of Dance As Told By One Man In 60 Minutes With An Energetic Group Finale

Joseph talks about growing up in a highly artist family and how the draw to attend Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) first brought him to WA.

He then goes on to tell the story behind the creation of the History of Dance solo show, which so beautifully spans so many facets of all things dance, and how it has developed to place it is now.

The conversation doesn’t end there. We then explore the life of a dancer and how Joseph’s body is his instrument as an artist. We talk about his relationship with his body, functionality vs aesthetics and the benefits of exploration of movement.

Joseph is wonderfully engaging and his energy and humour shine throughout the conversation. By listening to this you will come to realise that dance is for everyone and there no better place to start that in your bedroom with only your radio as company.
