We are delighted to welcome Maria Nilson Waller as our second Residency Artist in 2014. Maria is researching a new dance piece to be performed by herself and two Sweedish dancers along with our own Katherine O'Malley. Renowned composer George Higgs will be mentoring Maria on the use of music and rhythm in the piece.
Originally from a mountainous region of Scandinavia, Maria has been inspired by the ocean surrounding since coming to Ireland, and her piece aims to investigate the blue economy and this most important of ecosystems. Maria will share an insight into this work with a work-in-progress performance and discussion of her research. Audience feedback is most welcome.
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
