Joe Moran is a British-Irish artist and choreographer with a wide-ranging practice incorporating theatre and gallery works, lecture-performance, works on paper and curatorial projects. Recent and forthcoming commissions and performances include Wysing Arts Centre (2018), Bluecoat (2018) coinciding with the Liverpool Biennial, Kettle’s Yard (2018), Sadler’s Wells (2017), Whitechapel Gallery (2017), Delfina Foundation (2016), Block Universe/ fig-2 at the ICA (2015) and DRAF (Frieze 2014).
Situated within the field of expanded choreography and contemporary art history, Moran’s work addresses the political through the deconstruction of representations of gender and personhood, through strategies of othering and queering, and through critique.
‘The associations it produces are vivid – violence, dependency, domination, weight, guilt, desire – but the duet remains resolutely abstract, giving space for these readings to arise, mutate and complicate one another’
Thirst (2017), Sadler’s Wells, Exeunt Magazine
‘In some of its most sophisticated manifestations, critique can be a conscious engagement or dis-identification with the object upon which it is focused…Moran gently, incisively queer-ies these things’
Arrangement (2014), national touring, Londondance.com
