In 2020 we celebrated our quarter century – THANK YOU to all the artists, technicians, audiences, participants, production teams, funders and supporters that made it happen. We’d also like to say a special thank you to all our Anniversary Donors for their generosity in a year of challenge and change.
SHARE OUR SPIRIT – SUPPORT OUR VISION
What do you think about CoisCéim Dance Theatre – we’d love to know in 25 words or less!
You Said –
I danced, swung in a swing, laughed, shouted, sang, signed sign language, drove a bumper car, did cartwheels on a bed… and ALWAYS felt part of something very special.
Or books on the ground ?
Bodies moving ?
David is Inspirational.
Úna McCarthy, OMAC, Belfast, 1995 (who gave us our first gig, thank you!)
Elaine Gaston, my colleague, and I met David. I suppose by then we had developed a reputation for programming dance and physical theatre in our tiny venue with a big heart. CoisCéim came and stole our heart away.
Diane O’Keefe’s favourite moment (Performer)
Creating Ballads in Shawbrook, I watched in awe how David Bolger transformed Human stories of heartache and loss into a moving, breathing, visceral piece of theatre.
Laurie Uprichard’s favourite show (Programmer)
David and Madge — Swimming with My Mother! A brilliant evocation of the filial relationship wrapped in the perfect metaphor of water.
Nanette Kincaid (Performer)
Moving to Dublin, CoisCéim became my family & we had wonderful, crazy adventures as Mermaids. From hysterical belly laughs to grumping at cast members that stole my Ginger Nut biscuits in Beijing!!!
Jon Pearson (Company Manager)
Working with CoisCéim is such a joy that the prospect of spending half the summer in an underground crypt in London sounded appealing!
Jim Culleton (Director)
Working with CoisCéim is an absolute pleasure. It is an adventurous, exciting, and hugely rewarding experience. And, to top it all, they are lovely people!
A HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR ANNIVERSARY DONORS FOR YOUR VITAL SUPPORT.
