DDF Photo Diary – Preview of Pina at the IFI

Here at Dublin Dance Festival we don’t want to have all the fun on our own – we want to share it with you! With this in mind, we’ve recruited two photo diarists – Al and Dave – to sneak you in behind the scenes and give you a glimpse of events leading up to and during the Festival.

Last Thursday (April 21) we joined forces with the Goethe Institute and the IFI for a preview screening of Wim Wenders’ Pina in 3D. The screening was followed by a conversation between DDF board member and former Tanztheater Wuppertal dancer Finola Cronin and the company’s current rehearsal director Barbara Kaufmann. Both the movie and the discussion were thoroughly enjoyable and insightful, and Al was on hand to capture a little of the evening:
