Joe Moran (UK associate) is a choreographer with a wide-ranging practice incorporating touring theatre works, gallery installation, lecture-performances, and curatorial projects. His work tackles contemporary propositions in dance, performance and critical thought. Recent commissions and touring include Block Universe/fig-2 at the ICA (2015) the first step in a collaboration with sculptor Eva Rothschild, David Roberts Art Foundation (Frieze, 2014), Nottingham Contemporary (2014), Assembly (UK tour, 2014), The Modulated Body (2013) commissioned by Ordovas for its Bacon/Rodin exhibition, and The Place Prize (2013). His first drawing exhibition, Tracks and Lines was presented at Gallery Lejeune (Oct – Dec 2015). Joe’s recent work Arrangement will have its first stand-alone UK and international tour in 2017.

As a UK Associate at Delfina Foundation, Moran will consider ways of translating his new work On the Habit of Being Oneself, which explores the surrender of intention and choice making in dance, to the gallery context.
