WOMEN & WORK, The Contract is a dance theatre performance led by choreographer Philippa Donnellan, and theatre artist Ruth Lehane, premiering on Culture Night, Friday 17 September at 6pm with additional performances on Saturday 18 September in the afternoon. The project is produced in association with Dance Limerick, as part of their new programme DL.BRIDGE, and hosted by Limerick Chamber.

WOMEN & WORK, The Contract takes a light-hearted, quizzical look at life in the workplace as experienced by women. The piece is performed by an ensemble of dynamic local women with a love of dance, who have been busy rehearsing with Philippa and Ruth over the past six weeks at Dance Limerick. Limerick Chamber opens its doors to host the show, and provides a striking office background for this special promenade performance. The piece is inspired by women from all walks of life who joined Philippa during a research residency at Dance Limerick in 2019.
