Dance Limerick is delighted to welcome Liz Roche Company back to research "Three Parts Grace", a new solo dance work by associate dance artist and founding member Katherine O'Malley.
“Three Parts Grace” will be produced by Liz Roche Company with the support of an Arts Council Project Award. The piece centres on the subject of forgotten beauty and will be made in collaboration with Limerick based composer Darragh Dukes and both Dublin based filmmaker Mark Linnane and visual/performance artist Fergus Byrne.
Katherine has been developing her work over the past two years, supported by the Arts Council, Liz Roche Company and past residencies at Firkin Crane Cork and Tipperary Dance Residency's TRY programme. For this residency at Dance Limerick Katherine will continue developing the piece joined by her collaborators.
“Three Parts Grace” is set to be presented alongside Liz Roche’s new project “Time Over Distance Over Time”, a collaboration with a stellar group of dance artists in Europe and Australia through the medium of new technologies in relation to time and distance in the creation of live performance. Liz will join Katherine during the residency.
Liz and Katherine will both teach a professional class during the residency:
Liz Roche, Fri 30 Oct, 10am-11.30am
Katherine O'Malley, Fri 06 Nov, 10am-11.30am
The residency will culminate in a sharing and discussion open to the public on Friday 6th November at 2pm.
Through a combination of performance platforms, residency opportunities, master classes, talks and lectures, Dance Limerick will advocate for artistic dialogue and exchange. In collaboration with dance artists across a range of practices, Dance Limerick will promote the creation of new and innovative work and will devise programmes of access, engagement and participation for the wider public.
Based at the premises of the former Daghdha Dance Company, Dance Limerick houses offices and a fully equipped studio space along with a separate performance venue known as the Daghda Space
