Lunchtime Listening: A Podcast Series from DRAFF

If you're taking a break to eat your lunch or if you're just in need of a moment away from your work (or the news), we've got you covered with this short podcast series created by DRAFF and ddr.

In this 3-part podcast series, we hear from three boundary-breaking international artists who presented workshops at DDF2019 as part of a programme curated by DRAFF.

Sit back, enjoy and be inspired...

Episode 1: Nora Chipaumire and Oona Doherty

Zimbabwean-born, New York-based choreographer and performer Nora Chipaumire met up with Belfast-based choreographer and performer Oona Doherty to have a chat about their work, and dance in general.

Both Oona and Nora are intensely physical and dynamic performers, concerned with energy of the performative moment. Their conversation addressed issues of race, the idea of selling out and economies of performance.

Episode 2: Aimar Pérez Galí and Sarah Browne

While in Dublin to present a workshop as part of DDF2019, Catalan choreographer and dancer Aimar Pérez Galí, met Irish visual artist Sarah Browne, who took part in the workshop. Together, they discuss Aimar's work, much of which focuses on the idea of embodied intelligence, and how the body functions as an archive of its experiences.
