Moss is a member of the band OKO formerly Tralalka
She was a core member of radical and experimental theatre company MAS productions 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.
