Following commissions for Newham London and Sonic Gaze, Adam Moore and Esme Lewis-Gartside began collaborating as A&E in spring 2019.

Their performance project, Leave your vessels, researches how movement and sound communicate, and how processes from one discipline are activated in another.

A&E attend to and steward the transfer of energy between mediums, unimpeded by language and hyper accelerated, technological environments.

A&E intuitively overlap and layer processes for solo dance making and sound composition, attuning to shifting orientations within the embodied and psychoacoustic landscapes they create. They navigate sound and movement making, exploring how sonic ideas become embodied and transformed through movement.

Leave your vessels investigates communication and connection in performance spaces, facilitating empathic relationships with audiences.

Exploring the permeability of intimacy, Leave your vessels cultivates hospitable environments that push into new forms of communication.
Artist collaborator Kaivalya Brewerton joined A&E to perform Leave your vessels in 2020.
