Sensate was completed in 2016 and was Jo Cork's first screendance work. It has been screened in theatres, studios, cinemas, galleries and festivals, and won an international award for Best Film in category at Videomovimiento Festival Internacional Videodanza. 


One woman’s fight to shed the emotional inhibition which prevents her from feeling any true physical connection to her life. Through her desperate journey, she seeks a way to feel the reality of her world; passion, pain, joy and vulnerability alike, and reconnect with the visceral sensations of what it is to be human, alive and conscious.
