Percolate Residency: Salma Ataya | 23 - 27 March 2020
In this residency, Salma Ataya will be exploring the idea of how to be a woman in two diﬀerent societies and how things like other people’s behaviour toward us can change our body and our movements. The question is, how can we try and deal with what is happening daily in our life without letting it aﬀect our bodies? Since what is in our mind aﬀects us physically, how can we be ourselves without using a mask to hide who we are and not try to be someone else? From experience and what she has seen in the streets, Salma will take the idea of abuse towards women from both genders and from ourselves to see how that aﬀects the body and if it’s eﬀect is the same in us in any way or if it is diﬀerent depending on who we are and where we come from?
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
