Adam Moore is a British-Saint Lucian artist who dances and works with dance. Born, living, and working in the regenerated east end of London, he examines notions of sustainability through transdisciplinary practice, applying embodied processes across various mediums. Kaleidoscopic and sensitive, his practice explores multiculturalism, unity, and resilience. He curates and designs spaces to perform in that offer and reciprocate care, intimacy, and generosity. In his performances, installations, moving image, writing, and teaching he offers encounters with transdisciplinary gestures, inviting others into new ways of perceiving and connecting material, non-sensory, and spiritual dimensions. Dancing with people, life forms, materials, and structures in the places he lives and the spaces he moves through, he explores exchanges across fragmented dimensions that touch himself and others deeply, softening hardened institutions, helping life to thrive more fully.
Adam has performed and exhibited at London Topophobia, Limehouse Town Hall, Siobhan Davies Dance, RAWLab (Bow Arts), The Yard, Hackney Wick, Haarlem Artspace, [SPACE], Guest Projects, Newham and Old Stratford Town Hall, The Place, Kunstraum, London, and Flat Time House. In 2021 he has given talks for Dancing Through Crisis (University of Roehampton, University College London, and Paris-Lodron University of Salzburg, Austria); Choreographing New Futures (The Place, London); A colaboradora, a workshop commons: inaugural research practice series hosted by Performance@King’s and The National Gallery, and the forthcoming a-n Rural Assembly. He has taught professional morning class at Independent Dance, and online for Inklingroom on Netil Radio, and currently teaches Camden Art Centre’s Transformative Futures Youth Collective programme, and students at The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama on the Performance Arts undergraduate programme. Adam writes for Dance Art Journal. He is a Leverhulme Performing Arts Scholar, a recipient of a Jerwood Bursary (2020), and a CONSTELLATIONS 2020-21 artist, developing collaborative and socially engaged practice with UP Projects and Flat Time House.
