Exploring Dublin City through dance & performance

Led by Philippa Donnellan

 
Where have you danced in Dublin?
Where do you dream of dancing in the city?
 

Inspired by unusual buildings, hidden spaces and places out of the ordinary, DANCE LATITUDES was a creative project for people aged 50+ interested in dance, performance, architecture and the City of Dublin. Led by Philippa Donnellan, participants were invited to explore and respond to the urban architecture in the creation of choreography. They visited the Irish Architectural Archive to hear about Dublin’s architectural heritage from the encyclopaedic Exhibitions and Outreach Officer Simon Lincoln, and met the wonderful Aideen McCole, Education Curator at the Irish Architecture Foundation to discover how current architectural practice influences communities and their environments. And to bring both people and landscape together, we were also delighted to collaborate with digital visual artist John Galvin on the creation of a short photographic animation as part of the performance. DANCE LATITUDES culminated in free public showings at CoisCéim’s studio for Culture Night 2018. 

Many thanks to the Irish Architecture Foundation and the Irish Architectural Archive for their kind support and expertise during DANCE LATITUDES.
