Sally Morgan
BFA, MES, Dip. Sustainable/Environmental Education, (PhD in progress)

Sally Morgan (she/her) lives in K’jipuktuk/Halifax. She is a mother, an improviser, an interdisciplinary dance/performance artist, a movement and environmental educator. She has been a part of the Canadian dance community for 25 years, studying nationally/internationally in contemporary and postmodern dance, improvisation/contact improvisation, and somatic practices. Her work has been presented across Canada, in Europe and the USA.

Sally works within an ecosomatic framework and on/in/with the borderlands between body and place, performance and ecology, improvisation and the everyday. Her work is rooted in place studies, relational embodied ethics, slow pedagogies, and site responsive practices. She uses the body-as-manual and questions the how and why of our everyday movements, in and with the more-than-human environment, as embodied acts of performance.

Sally coordinated the Somatic Movement Exploration Lab in Toronto from 2013-2018 and has recently taught as contract faculty at both Acadia University and in The Fountain School of Performing Arts at Dalhousie University. She sits on the Board of Directors of Wonder’neath Arts Society and is a volunteer at Veith House. Sally is a certified Yoga and Pilates instructor
(Eastward Moving Dance + Somatics) and works creatively under the umbrella of SLOW DANCE LAB and with artist collective the sense archive.
