Dance: Croí Glan Lab Day at Dance Cork Firkin Crane

29 Jul 2024, 10:30 am

Dance Cork Firkin Crane, John Redmond St, Shandon, Cork

Croí Glan are holding a free lab day, open to professional/semi-professional dancers, with and without disabilities, to join them to research their current practices in integrated dance.

Croí Glan have been holding lab days at Dance Cork Firkin Crane both in person and online since 2009. This upcoming lab day, taking place on the 29 July at 10.30am, will focus on themes of climate change and sustainability, plus any other physical questions/obsessions and curiosities that emerge from participants on the day. The research in each lab day develops out of who arrives in the studio and what their current physical questions are, which is then developed into movement exploration.

The event is free, but booking is required at the Dance Cork Firkin Crane website.

Led by Artistic Director Tara Brandel, Croí Glan is an award winning Contemporary Dance Company celebrating diverse bodies on stage, and a flagship company for EDI with a case study in the new AC EDI handbook.

Creating 22 works since 2006, Croí Glan has toured nationally and internationally: highlights of the company’s body of work include Liz Roche’s An Outside Understanding (Dublin Dance Festival 2013, nominated Best Performers Dublin Fringe), the multi award winning short film Armour Off! (in collaboration with Invisible Thread, Caroline Bowditch and Linda Fearon), and David Bolger’s On the Wall (performed in 25 locations including Miami, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Barcelona, Bern, and Turku).
