Moss Beynon Juckes is a multidisciplinary music artist and somatics facilitator born in Sydney and raised in the U.K. She is presently based in Berlin. (Photographer – Ana Torres)
Moss has a syncretic and interdisciplinary approach to her own journey of self awareness and the production of work. Through her work as an artist, musician, dancer, lotus mother and energy facilitator she brings together integrative somatic body practices that are inspired by birth, life, eros and death cycles in Nature.
Moss is a member of the band OKO formerly Tralalka. She has interpreted the works of artist Tino Sehgal for 7years and has performed at Palais de Tokyo, Okayama Art Summit, Tate Modern, Documenta XIII, Stedelijk, Martin Gropius Bau, Festival de la Cite Lausanne, Foundation Beyeler and more.
She was a core member of radical and experimental theatre company MAS in London. They successfully achieved a long run at the acclaimed Soho Theatre- writing, staging and performing a culturally diverse stage show that crossed the boundaries of ritual gig, experimental theatre and performance art. They further developed this into a visual and music art experience where they facilitated the merger between secular ritual art practice, pop music, VR technology and neurodiversity.
Her recent studies are integrating death doulaship training, and autogenic training alongside 15 years in somatic body work and performances crossing over BMC, Contiuum Breathing, Kundalini Yoga, Ecstatic Dance, Contact Tango/Improvisation and Voice and Movement Integration, Pop music production, haitian ritual dance.
