Palimpsest, a two-week installation, book-ended by two performance evenings, comes to the Dance Limerick Space from 31 August - 14 September.
Created by John Galvin, Visual Artist, John Greenwood, Sonic Artist and Mark Carberry, Choreographer, Palimpsest comprises both a large-scale multimedia installation and two unique choreographed performance evenings. The architectural space of Dance Limerick (St John's Church) is re-imagined as a recording device, one that has stored traces of the memories and experiences of the inhabitants of Limerick City. These fragments of memory are then 'released' from the walls through an immersive and multi-layered audio visual experience.
Presented in association with Limerick City of Culture under the Made in Limerick strand.
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
