Join us in a conversation about contemporary dance and movement. We invite you to participate in a lively, exploratory, informal discussion about the role of contemporary dance and movement as an expressive art form. We will attend some of the performances in the festival with enthusiasm and absorb the subtle language of movement and dance. Later, as a group, we will reflect on our individual responses to the performances. We will consider writing as a vehicle to express those responses, to articulate our experience of the connection between mind and body and how contemporary dance and movement can broaden our understanding of art.
Wednesday 7 Feb - 7.30 at Nellie’s
Friday 9 Feb at 7.30 and/or Saturday 10 Feb 6.00 performances

Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
