Working Women, Dance
As part of a 2 week residency, choreographer Philippa Donnellan invites local participants to to explore how dance theatre is made.
A little about the project from Philippa:
I look forward to embarking on a journey of discovery with women in Limerick, to consider women’s experiences of work and to ask - what does work mean to you? I am curious and excited about making choreography and devising dance theatre from our experiences and would like to discover more about the activities, places and environments where women work – and the impact these might have on women’s lives and well-being.
Invitation to Participate:
Women aged 18yrs and over are invited to take part in research towards a new piece of dance theatre around the theme of Women and Work. You are invited to join professional choreographer Philippa Donnellan, to share your experiences of work in the home, outside of the home, in Ireland or abroad. Sessions will combine discussion over a cuppa, alongside movement exploration of how dance theatre is made.
