With Light Moves 2018 festival activities wrapped up for another year, Limerick Dance Artist in Residence Mary Wycherley will be back in the studio throughout Spring opening up ideas for a new work entitled Weathering. Commencing a new phase of work is always exciting and Mary will be joined by Dancers Magdelana Hylak, Lucia Kickham and Sarah Ryan in Dance Limerick during this process. With time to dig in and further develop the questions for mixed media performance explored in 2018, Mary will now be introducing questions and practices that bring together dance ensemble, video and human voice.
Mary will continue her Open Futures programme introduced in 2016 in providing mentorship and support for local dance artists. In February she is delighted to work again with choreographer and performer Rosalind Crisp who is back in Limerick for a residency.
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
