'Meet the Artist' with Amala Dianor and DDF Friends

'Meet the Artist' with Amala Dianor and DDF Friends

Friends of the Festival were invited to a casual discussion with choreographer Amala Dianor.

To kick off the 2022 Edition of Dublin Dance Festival, the DDF team met with our Friends for an exclusive 'Meet the Artist' moment with Amala Dianor, creator of the collaborative choreography, Siguifin. The Project Arts Centre bar was buzzing with the warmth and excitement for the sold-out opening performance of our first full, in-person Festival since 2019. We were delighted to be able to catch up with our Friends!

Siguifin brought together a constellation of talents from Mali, Senegal and Burkina Faso to celebrate the vitality of a collective African dance – a connection in perpetual evolution, an artistic bubbling that animates the whole continent. Vibrant and joyful, this performance thrilled audiences and received an enthusiastic standing ovation each night. 

Thank you to all DDF Friends and Supporters who joined us. We are looking forward to seeing you again soon!
