What you’ll do

Join artist Es Morgan and The Place’s Artist Development Producer Amy Bell in conversation as they talk about Es’s new work, ‘to feel something tipping’.

The work, a dance film broadcast live in a continuous loop, explores trans embodiment, visibility, being with others and being alone.

Es and Amy will share the work, and then discuss the ideas behind it and the process of making. You will also have an opportunity to ask them questions.

This event will be hosted through the videoconferencing platform BlueJeans. After booking a ticket, you will receive a confirmation email with joining instructions. Your microphone and camera will be switched off for the whole session.

Host

Amy (they/them) is a London-based dance artist and producer. Their work, including performing, making, writing, curating, facilitating and dramaturgical practices, is borne of binary-busting fervour. They aim to explode “them-and-us” thinking around embodiment, queerness, marginalisation and relationships between audiences, artists and organisations. Amy’s solo works ‘TOMBO(Y)LA’ and the award-winning ‘The Forecast’ and have toured internationally, and their teaching and facilitation includes working with queer collectives in Cearà, Brazil as well as with professionals and young artists across the UK. Amy is currently Artist Development Producer at The Place, where they also curate ‘Splayed’, an international festival of disruptive queer performance and digital art.
