WHAT NEXT Festival Welcome

Tue 18 May 21

Welcome to WHAT NEXT 2021, a week-long feast of performance, discussion and participation. While disappointed that we cannot gather as we normally do, we hope you’ll join us online, for live streamed performances, workshops, and a reading group which we hope will inspire discussion, reflection and anticipation to come together again at live events this Autumn. We’re pleased to welcome back to Limerick, Aliina, Chrissie and Rebecca with new work specially commissioned by Step Up Dance Project. We also look forward to welcoming Lisa Fingleton, Prof. Nicholas Rowe, Maria Nilsson Waller and Stace Gill who will stimulate thoughts and ideas around sustainability of practice, for artists and organisations.

Finally, we look forward to sharing Rachel Sheil’s Associate Artist commission, and the work of our Aerowaves Artists, Joy Alpuerto Ritter and Sung Im Her.

Many thanks to our funders, friends, and supporters who enable us to present Limerick as a dynamic centre for dance.
