Joe Moran: Singular & Thirst Gallery Performances

  • Wed, 24 Oct 2018

Join us at Bluecoat as choreographer and artist Joe Moran presents a new collection of performances in Liverpool for the first time, ahead of On The Habit Of Being Oneself.

Gallery Performances

Wed 24 Oct / Free, Drop in 


2-3pm Singular  
3.00pm Thirst (12mins) 
3.30-4.15pm Singular  
4.15pm Thirst (12mins)
4.30-5pm Singular 



In the evening, a cast of seven exceptional international dancers perform Moran’s most recent work On The Habit of Being Oneself accompanied by a commissioned sound score by sound artist and composer Kaffe Matthews and costume design by Tom Rogers.

On The Habit of Being Oneself is an arresting dance experiment placing full-bodied dancing under the spotlight. On a stripped back stage 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. Singular has been presented in galleries across the UK including Nottingham Contemporary, the ICA and most recently Kettle’s Yard. In Thirst, two men navigate a complex, shifting terrain of power, submission, complicity and consent.
