Willard Morgan is a performance artist, actor, and New York filmmaker and producer. Through words, music and interpretation, Willard creates visually stunning artistic people on stage. He also produces provocative music videos and films that explore his inner obsessions, fashions and current events.

In April 2016 he workshopped Vestiphobia in the Taller Gorria Gallery in Havana which led to a full four-act production mounted at Fabrica de Arte Cubano in February 2017, produced by Grettel Carbo and Berta Jottar and directed by Steve Fagin. This was one of the largest artistic collaborations developed for and in Cuba, engaging the talents of some thirty Cuban artists as actors, musicians, designers, dancers, models, and filmmakers. There are plans for a return engagement at Fabrica de Arte.
