Call for participants! Fast Track to Dance with Project Brand New & Dublin Dance Festival

Wed 24 Apr 2013

Project Brand New and Dublin Dance Festival invite participants to take part in their new joint initiative Fast Track to Dance. This is an exceptional opportunity for anyone who is interested in and curious about dance but hasn’t seen very much yet. It is a completely immersive weekend at Dublin Dance Festival delving into the festival’s vibrant programme of work. 15 people will be selected to form the Fast Track group, who together will attend 8 dance events ranging from large scale to small scale work, presented by both national and international dance makers. In addition, the group will have the opportunity to meet the Festival Director & team and meet some of the makers & choreographers. They will have access to all post-show events and will participate in a critical feedback session, facilitated by Lynnette Moran of Project Brand New and Niamh McCann, actor & theatre maker .

Fast Track is a short sharp burst of activity that will introduce the group to dance as an art form – and will build a critical language and confidence around seeing and talking about dance performances. \
