It aims to bridge the gap between dance education and professional contemporary dance practice in Ireland. The programme comprises of training, rehearsals, performance and personal development for six selected dancers who have completed their professional training within the last three years. The programme will enhance your professional networks by connecting you to the Irish contemporary dance community, thereby improving your professional opportunities in Ireland. This programme includes: 1. Creation and Performance of a new dance piece with Choreographer Catherine Young Catherine is a Dance Ireland Associate Artist and a UK Bench Fellow.

Further information about Catherine Young is available at www.catherineyoungdance.com. 2. Learning and Performing Repertory with Choreographers John Scott and Daniel Squire This element of Step Up enables dancers to work with two choreographers on the reconstruction/setting of existing choreography. Participants will gain an understanding of choreographic ideas and their historical context and will develop their technical and performance skills through different working practices, genres and techniques, resulting in a final public sharing. The Repertory Programme will take place over two weeks (12 days) from Monday 30 July to Saturday 11 August. In addition to the training, the Repertory Programme enables participants to work with choreographers beyond what would be available in a day-long workshop or audition, thereby facilitating a more embedded connection between choreographers and participants. In 2018, the two repertory pieces will be performed and toured in a mixed bill along with the newly commissioned. 3. Development Workshop and Information Sessions Increasingly, independent dance artists are required to initiate their own opportunities and to manage their own projects. Running over 2 days in November, the workshop will include: • Meeting key personnel within the dance field in Ireland • Developing a portfolio for presenters and for funding applications • Writing about your work At the end of the training, participants will have a toolkit or road map for taking the next steps in their career path. 4. Independent Development / Study This element of Step Up facilitates further opportunity for your professional development. It offers a menu of options from which you may choose one element (see sample menu below). Alternatively, you may initiate a development area of your own. The Step Up Programme Manager will assist with initiating the appropriate conversations with the chosen organisations. • Working with an artist-in-residence to deliver a particular aspect of the artist’s local programme. • Working with a company during its research period towards the creation of a new dance piece. • Taking a series of classes or training opportunities at Dance Ireland, Firkin Crane or Dance Limerick. • Working with the Light Moves Festival in a developmental capacity. This might be on audience development, volunteer co-ordination etc. • Working with a mentor to develop critical writing skills with a view to reviewing dance performances. • Developing knowledge around working with socially engaged practice by participating in events or workshops organised by Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts. Time frame / Key Dates The full rehearsal / performance period for the creation of new work with Catherine Young and the Rep Artists, John Scott and Daniel Squire, will run from Monday 30 July – Saturday 8 September using state of the art studios and facilities at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at UL initially, and then at Dance Limerick, before touring to Galway, Cork and Dublin 6-8 September.

Mon 25 Sep '17

Light Moves, Ireland's international festival of dance, film and media arts, is back for its fourth edition this year, running 2nd-5th November with events across Limerick City. The festival invites audiences to see dance differently, with an intriguing programme packed with thought-provoking and cutting-edge new and existing work offering an inspiring and stimulating journey of discovery. For full programme and bookings see www.lightmoves.ie. Light Moves has enjoyed sell out successes in previous years, creating a home for screendance in Limerick. This year’s festival programme offers the most exciting line up of artists yet, featuring world class dancers, filmmakers, visual artists and musicians from Ireland and as far afield as China and Iran. Highlights include works by Aernout Mik (Netherlands), Harun Farocki (Czech Republic), Cindy Sherman (USA) and Amanda Coogan (Ireland). The festival will feature live dance and music performances, exhibitions, film screenings from an open call submission, workshops, a festival symposium, talks and more. The festival will begin with two events on Thursday 2nd November. At 6pm, the installation series Screendance in the Gallery at the Limerick City Gallery of Art presented in collaboration with Light Moves will open, featuring video pieces by Aernout Mik, Harun Farocki, Cindy Sherman and Rosemary Butcher along with works from the ground-breaking Carriageworks commission 24 Frames Per Second.

The piece combines the visually stunning and global film archive of Eva Stotz, with the virtuosic and evocative rhythms of Marije Nie. Light Moves 2017 will feature an incredible line up of Irish artists and films including Falling Out of Standing, by CoisCéim Dance Theatre and Anú and choreographed by David Bolger, Owen Boss and Louise Lowe; I'm Roger Casement, directed by Dearbhla Walsh and choreographed by Fearghus Ó Conchúir; Sekar Arum – Forging The Irish World Academy Javanese Gamelan directed by Maurice Gunning, and Amanda Coogan: Long Now, which captures Amanda Coogan during a gruelling six-week live durational exhibition. Ríonach Ní Néill'sI Modh Rúin tells the story of women who went against the status quo and brought their families up as Irish speakers. See the Man, choreographed by Maria Nilsson Waller and directed by Jose Miguel Jimenez, focuses on a fortnight in a soccer team's life which takes in both the last match of the season and the public presentation of their Tchaikovsky-fuelled dance performance. Jimenez also directs Medicated Milk, choreographed by Áine Stapleton, a re-telling of the life of Lucia Joyce. Light Moves will take place in locations across Limerick, including Dance Limerick's home in John's Square with the historic St John's Church, Belltable, Limerick City Gallery of Art and the University of Limerick.
