#KnowingtheDance #NewMovements Showing @DanceIreland #DanceHouse (11 Aug, 4pm)


Date: Fri 11 Aug 2017
Time: 16:00 – 16:30
Venue: DanceHouse
Admission: Free!

All welcome to join Paula, Martin and myself for a Dance Ireland ‘New Movements’ showcase of development work of project entitled Knowing the Dance. We have been fortunate to have had a residential residency DanceHouse in Dublin which started on Tuesday in preparation preparing for upcoming shows, later this year at the Down Arts Centre (9 Septmber Downpatrick, NI) in September and in October at the Brian Friel Theatre.  Get a sneak early preview of this new work at this New Movements showing!

Knowing the Dance is a performance of dance, poetry and live music. The piece integrates the experience of holding a shared space between dance improvisation and poetry writing, with music improvisation supporting this relationship. Within this shared space, layers of dancing, sensing, writing and conversing inform and shape a performance that will bring both expressions closely together to form a oneness. From this dialogue, we have been developing a collection of dance-poems, weaving various themes into a piece through the creation of a ‘middle place’ between dance improvisation and poetry so the art forms work together in an indivisible way.

Paula is further supported by the Dance Ireland Residential Residency Fund which enables her to work in DanceHouse, away from her regular base in Belfast. More about the ‘Knowing the Dance‘ project can be found here.
