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.

Open Call: Future Forecast Curator

Project Arts Centre is powered by creative ideas, critical thinking and debate. Artists and audiences are often first to forecast the future – for good and for ill. 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…
