We had a tremendous response to our Open Call for applications for Percolate, our Artist Residency Programme, receiving the highest number of submissions to date. We are delighted to announce that the following dance artists have been awarded a residency to create/develop new work at Dance Limerick in 2017: Mark Carberry Lucy Dawson Inter Pares Project (Julie Havelund-Willett and Agnese Lanza) Monica Muñoz Marín Luke Murphy Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín & Isabella Oberländer Fu Le Rachel Sheil Catherine Young Dance Limerick’s Artist Residency Programme was re-named “Percolate” in January 2017 to reflect the sense of an idea that is brewing, developing or simmering and which can be brought to its next stage through a focused residency period. Residencies are open to national and international dance artists for a period of two weeks.
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
