We had an amazing response to our Open Call for applications for Percolate, our Artist Residency Programme, receiving a high number of submissions from various parts of the world.

We are delighted to announce that the following dance artists have been awarded a residency to create/develop new work at Dance Limerick from June - August 2018:

Deirdre Griffin | 11 - 22 June | Work-in-Progress showing Friday 22 June

Deirdre is a Dublin-based dance artist. Since graduating from Fontys Academy, she has performed extensively with Irish choreographers and companies including the Looseysmokes, Thisispopbaby, Catherine Young Dance and most recently Junk Ensemble. Deirdre will use her studio time to reconnect with her choreographic practice and to collaborate with composer Craig Cox in developing a framework for a new dance and music piece which takes Hope as its central theme.

Stephanie Scheubeck | 22 July – 3 August | Work-in-Progress showing Friday 3 August

Stephanie is a movement artist and film-maker. Her area of research is the relationship between synaesthesia and dance with the aim to promote synaesthesia as an example of diversity in society. Stephanie will work with two musicians Ferdinand Kavall and Ciaran Markey, and dancer, Matt Cleary, to discover and elaborate new artistic implementations of the theme with either a focus on analogue visuals and sound or with a featuring of digital media.

Kate Hilder | 12 – 24 August | Work-in-Progress showing Thursday 23 August

Kate is a Feldenkrais practitioner with an interest in Action Theatre and Improvisation. Kate will work with Edinburgh-based dance artist Skye Reynolds and with London-based artist Seke Chimutengwende to develop her solo and duet performance practice.
