CONTEMPORARY DANCE FOR ADULTS
Book : Tue 30 Oct '18 to Tue 04 Dec '18

The aim of these classes is to provide an opportunity for participants to develop the skill and confidence to dance with ease.

Informed by postmodern dance and somatic principles, each class will begin with simple warm-up exercises and build progressively towards more expansive movement phrases which travel out into the space.

All of the activities are based on practices/techniques which will help to release tensions which limit the range of movement. This will, in turn, allow each person to move with greater clarity and efficiency, to regain a sense of the natural flow of their movement and to enjoy their own unique dancing body.

Soldier Still by Junk Ensemble
Book : Thu 22 Nov '18

*Show now SOLD OUT! Please email info@dancelimerick.ie with your name and phone number to be added to the waiting list.*

Junk Ensemble, one of Ireland’s leading voices in dance theatre, is bringing their critically acclaimed production Soldier Still to Dance Limerick on Thursday 22nd November.

This beautiful and haunting tale of trauma was created out of series of interviews with current and former soldiers from the Irish Defence Forces, The British Army and the Bosnian war, and explores the after effect of war, the retirement of a soldier and the indelible traces left behind.

A combination of dance and theatre and gorgeous design performed by four exceptional dancers and former Captain, Dr Tom Clonan, the production is a poetic and human perspective of the impact of violence. Blending movement, text, music, real stories and real people, Soldier Still explores the vulnerability, the viciousness and the trauma of violence.

Awarded five stars by The Arts Review, who wrote of its 'raw power and a palpable elegance ... Not to be missed', the production was awarded four stars by The Irish Times and also by The Reviews Hub, who described its ‘dynamic and rich contemporary contemplation of the trauma of militant violence … Powerful.' The stunning and simple set design is an active participant in the piece, accompanied by a visceral sound design. Soldier Still won the Best Design Award at Dublin Fringe Festival 2017, and was nominated for Best Production and Best Ensemble.

Previous Artists-in-Residence at Tate Britain, multi award-winning Junk Ensemble have built a reputation in Ireland as dance innovators.  The company was founded by twin sisters and Artistic Directors Megan Kennedy and Jessica Kennedy to engage diverse audiences through the creation and presentation of brave, imaginative and accessible dance-theatre work that sheds light on important human issues relevant to society today. Their work has toured to New York, Europe, and throughout the UK and Ireland.

Junk Ensemble has created some of the most impressive contemporary dance in Ireland’ The Sunday Times
