Joe Moran is a British-Irish artist and choreographer with a wide-ranging practice incorporating theatre and gallery performance, curatorial projects, lecture-performance, drawing and spray paint works.
Recent and forthcoming commissions, projects and performances include Sadler’s Wells (2019), TantsuRUUM, Estonia (2019), The Lowry (2019), Wysing Arts Centre (2018) and Bluecoat (2018), coinciding with the Liverpool Biennial, Kettle’s Yard (2018) and Whitechapel Gallery (2017) and Delfina Foundation (2016) and Block Universe/ fig-2 at the ICA (2015).
Joe’s work is informed by his background in improvisation and experimentation, and a fascination with the opportunities and problems with formal choreographic composition and notions of expanded choreography. Joe is Artistic Director of Dance Art Foundation through which his performance and curatorial work is produced. He is an Associate Artist with Dance4 and was a Sadler’s Wells Summer University artist (2015-2018). Joe frequently works at the intersections between dance and the visual arts, and is a passionate advocate for artist leadership and artist representation in the strategic and systemic development of the art form. His most recent essay Nothing About Us Without Us was commissioned by Siobhan Davies Dance for the inaugural edition of its new journal Material.
