This workshop is available to all types of creatives interested in using/developing the physical body including but not limited to: dancers, circus artists, actors, musicians, fine artists, theatre directors, martial artists, live artists, yogis, sculptors, painters, and anyone else who has a passion and a hunger in developing their own personal, and artistic practise. 


Workshop Description

This two day intensive will commence each day with a group introduction to communicate a selfawareness of each individual’s current states of being to create an open, safe and respectful habitat before progressing to an in-depth approach to the fundamental techniques of Joss’ distinctive training, choreographic and performance methodologies, and life ideologies.

Joss Carter’s ‘FLESH & BONE’ practise focuses on exhausting the body through self disciplined technical and creative concepts that aim to construct, demolish and distort the anatomy in a radical approach to primitive, classical and contemporary movement, emotion & theatricality. Through the use of imagery we will explore the beauty within the grotesque, discovering vibrations in the body, expanding & shrinking the kinesphere, and the extremes in tension and relaxation energised by a conscious breath.

Joss’ classes aims are based around a social anarchism, empowering individualism and aiming to strip the ego to enhance the mental, physical and spiritual health of each participant. 

This class will naturally evolve into the conceptual and choreographic explorations of Joss’ creative processes including but not limited to: 

  • Mindful movement 
  • The discovery of anatomical distortions and obscurities. 
  • Purification Loops. 
  • Falling and impact protection.
  •  Structured theatrical improvisations with the use of physical imagery.
  • Creature creation.
  • Group creation of set material and repertoire. 
  • Choreographic tasks and experiments. 
  • Self analysis, observations, and group discussions. 


Self discipline, sacrifice, purging and mortification of the physical and mental being is vital to not only expand artistic identity, but to also infiltrate and educate the wellbeing and dexterity of each individual. Through a non judgemental, honest, caring, sensitive and intimate environment we shall recognise the importance of independence, camaraderie, self contemplation and social congregation.


Artistic Statement

“I am intrigued by the growth and decay of life and death, the clarity and distortion of anatomy and psychology, the physical and emotional expression/suppression of senses and states. I constantly try to taunt, confront and overcome selfish and selfless thresholds to reveal the beauty and honesty within the grotesque. My work is a provoking and controversial surreal hyper-realism that challenges the histories, beliefs, cultures, fantasies, trauma’s and tragedies of humanity through contemporary dance, theatre, live art, sound and set design. Through the disruption of physical and mental states of my being, audiences become transcended through a cathartic journey of visceral concepts and an awakening of the senses, allowing the questioning and consideration of ones own purpose/existence.”



Joss graduated from the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, UK in 2010. He has since worked, performed, toured and taught internationally with the likes of Gary Clarke Company,  T.R.A.S.H, BalletBoyz ‘The Talent’ with Russell Maliphant, Mor Shani, Tilted Productions, Hofesh Shechter x Anthony Gormley, Frauke Requardt, Secret Cinema & Lea Tirabasso amongst many more. He has also worked on films ‘Anna Karenina' starring Keira Knightly and Jude Law, directed by Joe Wright with movement direction by Sidi Larbi Chekaoui, as a movement speicialist and creature performer in ‘The Mummy’ starring Tom Cruise, directed by Alex Kurtzman and movement direction by Alex Reynolds & Charlie Mayhew, and is currently working on the new Sky TV Original drama 'Curfew' (2019) as a movement specialist and creature performer starring Sean Bean, Adrian Lester, Billy Zane & Miranada Richardson, directed by Colm McCarthy & Chris Smith, movement direction by Dan O'Neill & Charlie Mayhew.

Joss is an interdisciplinary DIY artist. Whilst independently producing his own works including ‘The Ravenous Flight of Misanthropy’ (2013) / ’Salvation’ (2014) / ‘MISERY FLESH’ (2015)/ ‘Anatomy of the Heart’, (2018) and teaching open level community, educational, company and professional classes/workshops including NSCD, The Place, TripSpace Projects, Birmingham Dance Network, Greenwich Dance, Sadler’s Wells and in Europe, Canada and the USA.
