Where do I work? How do I work? What borders do I meet in my work?
Dance artists, arts workers, researchers, and all those who work in and for dance, arts, and culture from across the island of Ireland and beyond are warmly invited to share initial findings from two major all-island research projects, Dance Conversations and Dance Counts.
Lead researchers Aoife McGrath (QUB), Victoria Durrer (UCD) and Peter Campbell (University of Liverpool) will join Dance Ireland and Theatre and Dance NI to reflect on emerging themes and issues as highlighted in these projects, and to share a first look at the Dance Conversations documentary film co-created by 6 dance artists from both sides of the Irish border and co-directed by Aoife McGrath and Mary Wycherley, with an original score by Jürgen Simpson (supported by an award from the Cooperation with Northern Ireland Funding Scheme of the Department for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media).
Following presentation of the research and film, we will invite discussion and feedback from those attending. Please note: the presentation of research findings will be recorded for documentation and dissemination. The open discussion will not be recorded.
