Image of Es Morgan by Rhianonne Stone

Es Morgan (she/her) is an artist, performer, and producer from East Yorkshire whose practices draw from diverse interests in dance, live art and writing. She creates performances as containers for language and movement, which co-exist on their own terms, without hierarchy or resolution. Made for theatres, clubs, galleries, and film, these works emerge in response to an array of interests: queer and post-work futures, poetry, tarot and far-left politics; funnelled through her shifting experiences of transness, intimacy, desire and longing.

Her works have been performed and exhibited at venues such as The Place, Wellcome Collection, The Yard Theatre, The Koppel Project, Yorkshire Dance (Leeds), Dance4 (Nottingham), Vivid Projects (Birmingham), The Marlborough Theatre (Brighton), The Wardrobe (Bristol) and La Fete du Slip (Switzerland).

Collaboration is at the heart of Es’ practice, and she has co-led participatory, curatorial and discursive projects in collaboration with artists such as Charlie Ashwell, Eleanor Sikorski, and Sara Sassanelli, responding to overlapping themes within their work: queer intimacy, androgyny, nightlife, tarot and magic.

Es works part-time with their Chisenhale Dance Space’s member community as a producer and facilitator. Her role has recently focussed on developing artist leadership at the organisation, experimenting with randomised selection processes, and advocating for marginalised artists.
