Marjorie Morgan

Movement for Actors Faculty

Marjorie Morgan is a composer, choreographer, dancer, vocalist and painter who lives and works in the Boston area. Her performance work often combines elements of movement, live sound, music and text. She has worked in collaboration with trombonist Tom Plsek, Croatian printmaker Boris Kajmak, lute player and singer Christopher Schaub, visual artist Whitney Robbins, sound and video artist Jed Speare, and actor/director Doug Lockwood.

Morgan received a B.A. in dance at Oberlin College and has performed nationally and internationally with the companies of Pooh Kaye, Paula Josa-Jones, Caitlin Corbett, Brian Crabtree, Snappy Dance Theater and the Mobius Artists Group. Boston critics have cited her work as being one of the top ten dance events in 1996 (Boston Globe), 1998 (Boston Globe), 1999 (Boston Phoenix), 2001 (Boston Herald and Bay Windows), 2002 (Boston Globe and Boston Phoenix), 2008 (Boston Phoenix) and 2009 (Boston Phoenix).

Morgan is the recipient of the Louis Sudler Award and a Tanne Foundation Award (both for outstanding achievements in the arts). She is a professor at The Boston Conservatory, where she teaches Movement for Actors, and serves as program director for the Conservatory's Extension Programs: Experimental Musical Theater Intensive. Morgan’s work is greatly inspired by the vocal training of members of the Roy Hart Theater, the choreographer Deborah Hay, the composer John Cage and the painter Richard Diebenkorn.
