With your wings we can fly!

 

Since exploding onto the scene in 1995, CoisCéim has brought dance to millions of people with the creation of over twenty new dance theatre works on stage, film, off-site and through a range of dance spectacles. From hotel bedrooms to the stage of the Sydney Opera House, David Bolger’s distinctive style of dance theatre articulates themes and emotions relevant to the landscapes in which we live to inspire, challenge, provoke and stimulate.

YOUR ROLE – SECURING THE FUTURE OF DANCE THEATRE

CREATION

CoisCéim works with highly skilled performers and collaborators to create dance theatre that is surprising, stimulating, meaningful and entertaining. In 2016, we worked with over fifty such artists. Your contributions will ensure that we continue to commission, nurture and showcase the creative talent of our artists and designers. Your donations ensure that we can coherently develop work, allowing the core artistic team time to meaningfully investigate concepts and ensure a natural evolution of the creative process – the highlight of our 2017 programme, BODY LANGUAGE has been in development for over three years and it is YOU, our ANGELS who have funded this process.

TOURING

CoisCéim builds its reputation and extends the life of its work by taking its vibrant form of dance throughout Ireland and overseas. In so doing, we showcase the unique talent of our dance artists, composers, musicians and designers.  Our work has been seen at many of the world’s most prestigious venues and festivals including Peak Performances and Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in USA, Spring Loaded, The Place, London, the Venice Biennale and Brighton Festival.  In 2017 we will become the first Irish contemporary dance company to perform on one of the world’s most iconic stages, the Sydney Opera House. Your support will ensure that ever increasing numbers will have the opportunity to experience what CoisCéim has to offer.

BROADREACH

We host an extensive dance awareness and participation programme which specialises in providing unique and original opportunities for people of different ages and backgrounds to participate in a range of classes, workshops and projects. Each project is specially designed for different communities of place or interest. By becoming a CoisCéim Angel you will enable CoisCéim to connect with more people allowing them to participate and further understand dance as an artform.
