In 2021 he also received an Art’s Council – Bursary Award to develop work emerging from this, which included a curatorial residency in Dance Ireland (MoveMEANT 2022), LIBERTY VIBES – and event supported by DCC Local Live Performance, and NATIVES as part of Culture Night (2022). He is also part of a strategic thinking partnership between DDF, 5 lamps Festival, Carlow Arts Festival and Top 8.

As a choreographer and movement director he worked with Theatre Maker Louise White, Felispeaks and with music artists Burna Boy and Ed Sheeran among others.


“Launched in 2019, Scott’s personal crusade to promote Irish choreographers on the global stage began as a labour of love to challenge limiting, confused, and often negative notions about Irish choreography and identity… the festival’s growth over the past three years has been staggering… Scott’s determination has this year’s festival shining a light on some of our finest choreographers, and dance film makers, positioned as part of a global practice and historic tradition, commanding form and space with the very best. [The Festival suggests] “that Irish choreography, like being Irish, like dance itself, and dance on film, is everything you thought it was and everything you thought it wasn’t. And lots in between you never thought possible or never thought of at all. Shaping identity, and dance, well into the future.” Chris O’Rourke, The Arts Review, July 2021”
