Daghda Space

Join us in a celebration of dance at the Daghdha Space, John's Square as we officially launch Dance Limerick. We have commissioned renowned choreographer Mary Nunan to create a performance especially for the event. Mary's commission has as its starting point the romantic and lyrical 2nd movement of Franz Schubert's String Quintet in C major. Fittingly Mary has created an ensemble piece with five female dancers. We are really looking forward the performance and to throwing open the doors of Dance Limerick to the Limerick community for an evening of fun, celebration and dance.

Dance Limerick exists to support the development of professional dance artists within the Limerick region and beyond.

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
