|Following in the footsteps of previous postholders including Suzanne Lacy, Oona Doherty, Amanda Coogan and Leonie McDonagh, this year’s BIAF Artist in Residence is Belfast based choreographer, Eileen McClory.
Her most recent work, BRINK, was made for Maiden Voyage Dance and reflected the ongoing climate of insecurity around Brexit with dancers performing on a 1.5 metre high table.
As part of her residency, Eileen will spend time at the prestigious CCN2 – Centre Chorégraphique National de Grenoble.
As the creator of Off the Rails Dance #OTR Eileen has choreographed and produced The Dutiful Wife 2016 Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival and S(3)nsored 2011, Pick n Mix Festival and received an Artist Career Enhancement Award from Arts Council NI in 2018 to develop #theSHAMEproject.
