Es Morgan (they/them) is an artist, performer, and producer from East Yorkshire whose practices draw from diverse interests in dance, live art and writing. They make performances for theatres, clubs, galleries, screens and pages. These works emerge in response to an array of interests: transgender theory, post-work futures, poetry, tarot and far-left politics; funnelled through their shifting experiences of intimacy, desire and longing. Their work has been presented at, amongst others, The Place, The Yard Theatre, Nottdance, tanzhaus nrw, The Marlborough Theatre, Le fete du Slip (Lausanne), Vivid Projects (Birmingham), and Vogue Fabrics Dalston.
Es works in various constellations with dance artist Charlie Ashwell, and they have organised workshops, discussions, performances and research events connected to overlapping themes within their work, such as gender, tarot, magic, monstrousness and post-work futures. In 2019 they released hereafter, a publication collecting texts by six artists, creating space for radical speculation and reimagining of the future. Es also works as a dramaturg and collaborator with performance artist Joseph Morgan Schofield.
Es works part-time for Chisenhale Dance Space, and co-curates club/performance night, move close, which brings together dancing, experimental electronic music, and unannounced performances from queer artists working across dance and performance art. Across all their roles they seek to advocate for the transformative potential of artist-led models, as well as greater accountability, transparency, and justice for marginalised artists.
