Galway Dance Days / Corp_Real Festival: 

Bodies in Conflict

27-29 March @ Black Box – NUI Galway – around Galway

 

How does the experience of conflict affect the body and movement?

What is the role of dance in representing and transforming conflict?

 

The 4th GDD|Corp_Real brings together practitioners and researchers in dance, performance, human rights, law, visual arts, politics and geography to share our understanding of how dance & performance practices address questions of conflict and resolution, social justice and social transformation.

GDD | Corp_Real is a public forum for artists, activists and scholars whose practices converge on the body, action and movement - stimulating and inspiring exchange and debate through performances, talks, screening and workshops.

Conveners: Dr Finola Cronin (UCD), Dr Aoife McGrath (Queen’s University Belfast), Dr Ríonach Ní Néill (Galway Dance Artist in Residence).

Produced & presented by Galway Dance Artist in Residence, Ríonach Ní Néill
