Dublin Dance Festival Opens This Week

Culture Ireland welcomes 17 International Festival Directors and Presenters to this year’s Dublin Dance Festival. The delegates are travelling with Culture Ireland support from a broad range of territories including Britain, the USA, Italy, France, Sweden, Germany and Austria.

Over the next three weeks the delegates will see a wide range of Irish dance artists from established artists and companies including the Liz Roche Company, Liv O’Donoghue, Colin Dunne, Irish Modern Dance Theatre and Emma Martin/United Fall as well as emerging artists. Also through the First Looks programme at Project Cube, which Culture Ireland partners with the Festival and Dance Ireland, they will have the opportunity to see new works-in-development by Lucia Kickham, CoisCéim Dance Theatre and Deirdre Griffin over two weekends of the Festival.


This Festival will open with Thisispopbaby’s RIOT which has already had international success with Culture Ireland tours to Australia and New York.


Details of the First Looks and Works-In-Development as part of the programme of Irish work at the Festival are available here.
