#CROWDdance 2023 artists Jacqueline Neuenhausen and Dylan Quinn will be in residence at Dance Limerick from 28 August to 8 September following their stay at Pottporus (Herne, Germany) exploring new ways of working together.
JACQUELINE NEUENHAUSEN is an urban dancer, performer and choreographer, inspired by different movement techniques and interested in the identity-forming character of dance.
After learning from professional dancers and actors in the “B2B” youth company of the Tanzhaus NRW, she continued her education in numerous workshops and courses with national and international dancers of all dance styles. She took part in various pieces and shows, directed by well-known choreographers and actors. Furthermore, she regularly takes part in battles and other competitions in Germany and abroad.
Jacqueline is a member of the Metamorphose Company of Kabawil e.V. and part of the Pandora Collective. She also was a member of the New Wave Ensemble, with whom she developed and performed various pieces. In 2022 she was on tour in with the dance theatre piece “Der Weihnachtsroboter”.
DYLAN QUINN has been Artistic Director of Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre since 2010 and a dance artist for 26 years. He has worked primarily across the UK and Ireland and choreographed 14 professional productions including being engaged as Movement Director on numerous theatre productions, receiving a nominee as Movement Director in the Irish Times Theatre Awards as a result. A significant focus of his work is the social, cultural and political context of his environment and the value of artistic practice, specifically dance.
He was one of the Abbey Theatre 2021 Commemoration Artists and as a result he is currently developing a new piece of work from this programme. Having been engaged in participatory work and reflecting dance practice approaches for many years, he has a strong commitment to supporting the development of dance within his local context. He supports this through his direct practice, the company he has established, and in his role as Deputy Chair of People Dancing (UK).
