Joe Moran: On The Habit of Being Oneself

  • Wed, 24 Oct 2018
  • 7.00 PM - 8.30 PM

Join us at Bluecoat as Choreographer and artist Joe Moran presents a series of performances in Liverpool for the first time. Moran will be performing series of performance interventions in and around the gallery, followed by a full evening work in the Performance Studio. Reconfiguring choreography and the dancing body within the intimate setting of the gallery, this collection of works offers a refreshingly immediate encounter with choreography, dancers and dancing.

On The Habit of Being Oneself is an arresting dance experiment placing full-bodied dancing under the spotlight. On a stripped back stage seven dancers navigate complex choreographic puzzles through continuous, relentless dancing. Reconfiguring choreography and the dancing body, the result is a challenging and refreshingly immediate encounter with dancers and dancing. 

 "Thoughtful, challenging and wide-ranging stuff" - TIME OUT
