SEA SCORES: DANCE PROJECT

When: Fridays 4-5:30pm, April 10- May 31st
Where: Dance Theatre of Ireland & Outdoors!

Extending from Laura's Residency at the Dun Laoghaire Baths artist studios in 2023 -  


Explore your connection to the Sea through a series of sea-inspired workshops integrating contemporary dance practices, improvisation, somatic embodiment, creative composition and site-specific research by the sea!

 

The Sea holds many associations, memories, emotions and experiences for us- joy and loss, power and vulnerability- through these workshops we will consider the waters of life, the water element within our body and our interconnection with the Sea through movement, voice, sound and text.
 
8 weeks of consecutive workshops:
Fridays  4-5:30pm
April 10th - May 31st.

Studio based workshops:
Friday 4-5:30 pm
At Dance Theatre of Ireland
From April 12th - May 10th (5 weeks)

Seaside Promenade:
Outdoor practice taking studio research to the sea, 
Fridays 4-5:30 pm
May 17th, 24th & 31st (3 weeks)

These workshops are for you if you:

  • Want to explore your creativity through dance

  • You have a good level of fitness and love to move

  • Want to learn about dance creation and choreography 

  • You are a nature lover happy to attend workshops outdoors ( you have your flask of hot tea and wet-gear ready just incase!)


This project is partially funded by Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council.

Contribution of 55 euro per participant will go towards the running costs of the project.

Limited Places - please
 send an email outlining your interest in the topic of the Sea and any movement experience you have to laurasarahdowdall@gmail.com before April 5th.


Participants will be notified by email if they have a place and given information on how to pay.

This is a research and development phase, we hope to create the opportunity for a second phase of workshops in Summer/Autumn that will lead to the creation of an outdoor performance.
