As part of Dance Ireland’s Pop Up Dance Project, Independent Theatre Workshop will host two workshops and perform a new dance work in celebration of young people and creativity.
The new dance work And We Gather is a performance piece choreographed by Emily Kilkenny Roddy in collaboration with students from the Independent Theatre Workshop Dance Studios.
The piece features dancers aged 12-18 who have worked together over an intensive creative period. The project showcases a gathering of passionate young people bringing their creative energies together.
And We Gather celebrates the newfound appreciation we have to be with each other in spaces. It will incorporate the surroundings of the Samuel Beckett Civic Campus in Ballyogan as inspiration and reflect the passing of strangers with their own individual stories and narratives to celebrate gathering points.
The piece will be performed twice in Ballyogan at 10.45am and 1.15pm, followed by dance workshops:
11am-11.45 am: suitable for ages 8-11 (taught by a senior member of Independent Theatre Workshop)
1.30pm-2.15pm: suitable for ages 12-16 (taught by leading dance artist Emily Kilkenny Roddy)
Each workshop lasts 45 mins. No pre-booking required.
