Kind Words Spoken

“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

Work-in-Development

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.

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
