Dance Limerick Studio



Creating her work for stage and screen, Aggiss’ interdisciplinary practice is driven by content, embodies feminist dance practices and is framed by the politics that challenge and resist the ‘authority’ of formal conventions.

This fast tasking, quick thinking, performance-making workshop will consider some of the following within the time frame; content and context, specificity and framing, recovering the body from the library, and writing and speaking for the moving body.

The workshop will make reference to Aggiss’ research, process and choreographic practices, and will invite participants to spread their wings, move outside the box, cross the fourth wall, and grapple with the unknown. Expect to talk, critique, show off, move and be moved.

Liz Aggiss studied at the Nikolais/Louis Dance Theatre Laboratory New York, and with Hanya Holm and Hilde Holger. She has an expertise in European Expressive Dance (Ausdruckstanz) and grotesque dance. She is Professor of Visual Performance at the University of Brighton and holds an Honorary Doctorate from The University of Gothenburg.

Since 1980 she has been a Wild Wiggler, Grotesque Dancer, Diva, Guerrilla Dancer, Trout, Golem and Performance Lecturer.

Dance Limerick exists to support the development of professional dance artists within the Limerick region and beyond.

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
