Join Rhys Morgan and the LGBTQIA+ choir for an evening of Sea Shanties, performed from a queer perspective.

FREE / All Welcome

Booking essential. Please book via Eventbrite following this link.

The choir was formed as part of Rhys’ Give & Takeover commission exploring queer motifs within seafaring history and collective performance in marginalized communities through the tradition of shanty singing.

Over recent months the choir have used their lived experience to rework existing shanties and inspire new ones, continuing the tradition of these folk songs being adapted time and again through generations.

Following the performance Rhys will provide some more context about the project with an open Q&A.


Rhys Morgan is a queer interdisciplinary artist based in Plymouth, UK. His work explores queerness as an operative in everyday experience and the expectations, possibilities and limitations of how this is expressed. He is currently undertaking an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, London.

To launch MIRROR’s Give & Takeover programme strand, MIRROR has commissioned three South West based artists to respond to the 2022 exhibitions programme. Give & Takeover’s can take any form with the one rule that they must not disturb the exhibition they are responding to and intervening in.
