IF WALLS COULD TALK
LED BY CATHY COUGHLAN
Presented in association with 14 Henrietta Street.
“Take a look at what home means to you – and consider what is happening in terms of housing policy within our society. In Ireland, have we learned anything from our past or are we simply recreating the conditions that led to the infamous Dublin tenements of 1890’s?’”
– Cathy Coughlan, 2019
Join the latest dynamic Choreography Project inspired by 14 Henrietta Street, and its journey from grand Georgian beginnings to the tenement dwellings of its later years.
Led by cutting-edge choreographer and visual artist Cathy Coughlan, this project will explore the themes of home and homelessness – past, present and future – to devise choreography and create an informal performance for 14 Henrietta Street.
THE CHOREOGRAPHY PROJECT is a regular feature of the BROADREACH audience engagement programme. It offers people the opportunity to work with professional choreographers in the exploration of contemporary dance theatre. Find out more here…
