Art, Rhythm & Dance at The Fergusson Gallery

Event Documentation Film

From 2010, This short documentation project celebrates the modern dance pioneer and artist Margaret Morris with a weekend of events in Perth at the Fergusson Gallery. Margaret Morris was born in London in 1891. She was a woman of extraordinary energy and talent. As well as her pioneering work in dance she was an accomplished artist, choreographer, author and movement therapist. She first performed on the stage when she was three years old, giving recitals in English and French. In 1910, aged just 19, she opened her first School of Dance in London, training pupils in her own dance technique which she called Margaret Morris Movement (MMM).

In 2010 a collection of artwork, dance costumes and archival material relating to Margaret’s incredible life was gifted to Perth & Kinross Council by the International Association of Margaret Morris Movement. This most generous donation brings her collection under the same roof as the work of the artist JD Fergusson, her partner of 47 years.
