A CHORAL SONG & CONTEMPORARY DANCE PROJECT FOR PEOPLE AGED 8 TO 80+

Funded by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council Arts Grants

 

My childhood landscape was not land but the end of the land – the cold, salt, running hills of the Atlantic. I sometimes think my vision of the sea is the clearest thing I own. -Sylvia Plath

 

The power, mystery and beauty of the sea, has long inspired artists of all creative disciplines.

Led by CoisCéim BROADREACH Director Philippa Donnellan and renowned composer Denis Clohessy, in association with the dlr LexIcon and Pavilion Theatre, SHORELINE invites people from Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown to embark on an oceanic journey of discovery – to share their stories and experiences about the sea, and create an original performance in choral song and dance.

SHORELINE begins in October 2018 with the artists leading song and creative dance workshops for 3 groups: children from a local primary school, members of a choir, and a specially established performance group for people aged 50+. At the end of November, the 3 groups will come together to celebrate and perform music and choreography created, in 3 sea-themed public performances.
