Join us for a series of creative events between March and May, including workshops, talks, rehearsals and performances. Designed to offer you greater engagement with dance, this fantastic initiative will give you insight into Liz Roche Company’s creative process on their recent work The Here Trio, as well as connect the group to other amazing contemporary dance pieces at this year's Dublin Dance Festival.
Through a series of workshops, you will explore key themes in the work including memory, empathy, what it is to be “here”, and relationships between politics and psychology on this island and beyond. The programme is an opportunity to discuss and respond creatively to dance works.
Creative Audiences is facilitated by Jenny Macdonald and Liz Roche with members of Liz Roche Company.
No previous dance or movement experience is required, though those with dance experience are welcome too! All we need is your commitment to the group and your openness to respond creatively to the dance experiences on offer.
