Director Biography - Jessica Wright, Morgann Runacre-Temple

JESS AND MORGS have been making work together since 2005. Their films have been shown on Channel 4, BBC iPlayer, Canal + and internationally at festivals including FIFA (Montreal) Cinedans (Amsterdam), Agite y Sirva (Mexico), Screendance (Stockholm) and San Francisco Dance Film Festival (USA). Their work has been screened at Sadler’s Wells, King’s Place, on large scale pop-up screens in Trafalgar Square and The London Southbank.
Curing Albrecht​ (commissioned by English National Ballet in association with MIF) had over 150k views and 3k shares in its first weekend online and was subsequently hosted on BBC iPlayer and Canal+TV. To date, it has won 7 awards at International Film Festivals, including Best Dance Film 2017 at New Renaissance Film Festival (UK), Best Director at Portland Dance Film Festival (USA), and the Audience Award at Barcelona’s prestigious Choreoscope Festival.

Their most recent work includes a commission for the Scottish Ballet’s digital season. Made with 26 dancers from the company, set to music from composer Anna Meredith’s album ​Varmints​, the production was filmed last Autumn and is currently in post-production.

Jess and Morgs have a particular interest in the dancing camera, the malleability of time through post-production technology and the use of surrealist imagery and humour to provoke new ways of thinking about the traditional art forms, making work that is relevant to today and to new audiences.

Alongside their collaboration, Jess is a dancer for Company Wayne McGregor and Morgs is a freelance choreographer for dance and theatre.
