Francess Gannon


I graduated from Liverpool Hope University in 2016, where I earned a First-Class honours degree in Creative and Performing Arts and later gained a Distinction in my MA by Creative Practice in 2018. I have since performed one to one performance installations (Talking Stalls) in events across Liverpool, including Liverpool Light Night 2018, and Angel Field Festival 2019.

Research interests

I began studying Practice as Research at Leeds in 2022, exploring queer theory and solo performance praxis in relation to public toilet practices. This study will be supported by walking methods, and mapping/remapping experiments to capture the placement of public toilet sites in response to the body in crisis. The research is funded by the School of Performance and Cultural Industries.
