In her first solo Linda Hayford breaks free from genres and conventions, mixing hip hop and popping to craft her own language. Full of grace and intensity, Shapeshifting follows the metamorphosis of a dancer from shadow to light. Dance Limerick is delighted to host Linda, an Aerowaves Twenty 17 Artist.
Linda Hayford is a young yet accomplished dancer whose undeniable mastery of technique serves strong organic gestures, where popping, hiphop and house dance all meet together as an harmonious body expression.
She collaborates with companies and artists such as Par Terre – Anne Nguyen, Paradox-sal, Engrenage – Marie Houdin and Black Sheep – Johanna Faye / Saïdo Lehlouh, as well as developing her own personal projects within her company Inside Out.
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
