James Morgan and Charley Fone

This project is by choreographer/performer, James Morgan and theatre-maker/designer, Charley Fone. We work in the spaces between dance, live art and devised theatre and attempt to create work which is both culturally provocative and entertaining. We’ve worked to develop a sustainable practice together since we met in 2013, and co-devise each work from conception to performance.
