Relive the Winter Edition atmosphere with our Festival Highlights Reel
During the month of November, we were thrilled to welcome so many dance fans back into the theatre with our Winter 2021 Edition – a unique and very special celebration of live dance.
With an iconic work from Compagnie Maguy Marin, and long-awaited premieres from Junk Ensemble, Catherine Young Dance, and Liz Roche Company & Crash Ensemble, the energy and excitement of audiences was palpable, the support for the artists was heartwarming, and the response to each and every performance was nothing short of overwhelming.
There was real a buzz from the moment the first audience members walked through the foyer doors right up until the thunderous applause of closing night. Catch a glimpse of some of the Winter Edition atmosphere in the highlights reel...
We would like to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who made the Winter Edition such a resounding success and such a welcome return to live dance performance – to the artists, contributors and collaborators, to The Arts Council and all our funders, supporters, partners and venues, to our dedicated team of volunteers, DDF Friends, and audiences for the continued support this year.
We are already looking forward to sharing more bold, breathtaking and boundary-breaking dance with you in 2022, but for now, take a peek at some of our favourite Winter Edition moments...
