The ISACS Network and Dance Ireland present Where Dance Meets Street, a cross sector gathering taking place on 17 June in association with the SpringMoves Dance Festival, supported by Wexford County Council.
We invite dance, street and circus artists to take part in workshops and conversations that explore the practice, creation and presentation of work in outdoor spaces and the democratic nature of Street Arts, with a particular focus on opportunities for outdoor creation in the reopened sector.
Dramaturgy Workshop 11am -1pm
Dramaturg Lou Cope leads this workshop that explores the difference between making work for indoor and outdoor contexts, and asks questions around how, why, where, with whom and for whom we might do so.
This is an interactive session for artists practicing in the field of dance, circus and street arts.
