Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion invite you to share something of their long-standing practice together, drawing from musical forms to create performance materials. The two-day workshop will focus on writing and performing musical scores, gestural sequences and short texts, looking at how to translate ideas and images from one medium to the next. Some experience of performance will be useful, but the workshop is open to people from all artistic backgrounds and interests.

About the Artists
Jonathan Burrows is a choreographer whose main focus is an ongoing body of pieces with the composer Matteo Fargion, with whom he continues to perform around the world. The two men are co-produced by PACT Zollverein Essen and Sadler's Wells Theatre London. His A Choreographer's Handbook is published by Routledge and has sold over 16,500 copies internationally since its publication in 2010, as well as being translated into seven other languages. Burrows is currently an Associate Professor at the Centre for Dance Research, Coventry University.
Matteo Fargion studied composition with composers Kevin Volans and Howard Skempton. He has been a close collaborator of Jonathan Burrows for almost 30 years years, sharing equally the conception, creation and performance of their work. He has also written extensively for other choreographers, most notably his long association with Siobhan Davies, and his recent collaboration with Norwegian artist Mette Edvardsen on her acclaimed pieces Oslo (2017) and Penelope Sleeps (2019). He has also written music recently for Claire Croizé's Flowers (We Are) (2019) as well as Andreas Spreafico's We have to dress gorgeously (2019) and Bad Dante Bad English Bad Opera (2021).
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
