WHAT'S ON: November Edit
Take a look at what's on the dance calendar in the coming weeks...
ALTERNATIVELY TERRIFIC & GENTLY by Liz Roche Company
11 & 12 December (The Complex Dublin) and 13 December (Online)
12 collaborating artists in 7 countries make a new dance transmission project between moving bodies connected by friendship, history and coincidence. Liz Roche, Jodi Melnick and Jenny Roche have created a new dance trio and have passed the creative baton on to a further group of collaborating artists who are individually interpreting the piece, bringing their own distinctive creative voices to the shared movement material.
Jenny Roche’s Expanded Fields, which was due to be presented at Live Collision 2020, will go ahead as a virtual installation performance on Mozilla Hubs on Friday 27 November at 7:30pm and will run through to Friday 4 December.
Join for a pre-show discussion moderated by Jools Gilson, then enter the performance where you can move your avatar around the virtual exhibition space and encounter different aspects of the installation. In a time when we are restricted from experiencing the live performance together in space, this installation offers the viewer an opportunity to explore the work online from multiple perspectives.
