Artists Encounter in Dublin, from 4-8 Nov 2024

Aerowaves Europe is looking for 10 dance makers based in Ireland to participate in an intensive capacity building programme which includes the presentation of three international works from previous Aerowaves selections, a workshop to explore dramaturgical tools, and a facilitated talk.

The three international works are:

  • Silvia Gribaudi’s A corpo Libero (Aerowaves 2010))
  • Eva Recacha’s Because I Can (BIC) performed by Lauren Potter (Aerowaves 2023)
  • Jean-Baptiste Baele’s Nabinam (Aerowaves(2023)
  • The works have all been part of past Spring Forward Festivals and will be presented at Dance Ireland as studio versions. These works all bring autobiographical elements and, in different ways, question societal attitudes to non conforming bodies on stage, offering a rich context for conversation and exchange both conceptually and compositionally.

The workshops will take place at Dance Ireland from 4-8 Nov 2024.

It will start from shared physical practices led by the choreographers and Lauren Potter, and will continue with analysis of the works, unveiling and exploring dramaturgical and compositional tools. The project brings additional expertise by involving renowned international dramaturg Monica Gillette and facilitators to help contextualise the works and connect to the practices of the participants.

Those taking part should attend all activities from 10am-8.30pm on Monday 4 November (when the performances will be presented) and 10am-6pm from 5-8 November.

Aerowaves Europe is offering two bursaries of €750 each to support the participation of artists who live more than 75km from Dublin.
