SEEING DANCE is a series of four talks offering opportunity to find out more about watching dance, enabling you to enjoy dance performances and to understand how past and present choreographers convey their ideas to the audience. The series will cover the key moments in the history of dance performance and practice, as well as taking an up to date look at some of the choreographers and dance companies appearing in Limerick in 2014. As such, the talks cover the work of seminal choreographers such as Martha Graham and will illuminate the work of Jerry Pearson, Liz Roche, John Scott, Megan and Jessica Kennedy and Russell Maliphant, within the context of what's gone before and how this has influenced or impacted upon their work.
SEEING DANCE is delivered by Brigitte Moody, Course Director of the Graduate Diploma and Masters in Dance at the University of Limerick.Related upcoming performances in Limerick
