“Liz Roche has been an integral part of Ireland's dance community for many years but her choreography has never settled into a groove. Yes, there's an aesthetic line running through her repertoire but she is a restless artist, continually pushing herself into new places.... her work communicates at a very private level.” Michael Seaver, Ballet Tanz
“Liz Roche is an artist with a serious track record.” Judith Mackrell, The Guardian
Dublin Dance Festival presents
Dates: 18 May - 18 May
Show Time: 5pm
Sharing a mutual admiration for each other’s work, Liz Roche and composer David Coonan have begun a collaboration to create a major new piece for orchestra and dancers in partnership with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
Taking the idea of people gathering together as a starting point, this work-in-development explores how a group can act as a conduit for the personal, in a communal exploration of small, singular details.
The commissioning of original music alongside contemporary dance has long been a core creative element of the Liz Roche Company. Having written work for international ensembles including the London Symphony Orchestra, the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Coonan’s work offers a striking complement to Roche’s choreography.

Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More

Who “gets” access to cultural and creative spaces? What happens to a “programme” when no rules apply? How does a building and an organisation inform the art it facilitates/creates/presents and how does that art, in turn, impact it? What questions are artists asking and how can a cultural organisation help artists explore potential answers? Future Forecast is a multiway transmission with 2020+ vision. In the future, everyone is an artist, everyone is the audience, and everyone is invited. Una Mullally This summer, Project Arts Centre was going to present Future Forecast, a series of events and artistic interventions forming…Read More
