Dying Breeds explores the staging and display of fetishised bodies and objects. It celebrates cultivated aesthetic but challenges our consumption of images in a society overwhelmingly saturated with visual text.
Dying Breeds is a research project and series of work exploring a new craft, integrating film-making, live performance, high-skill circus, musical collaboration, body modification and invented apparatus.
Emily Aoibheann is an artist, aerialist, performance practitioner, director, producer, creative facilitator and teacher from Dublin. Emerging from a musical and academic background, her work explores ‘intermedial’ and trans-disciplinary live-art; dynamic sculpture; physical, experimental and conceptual contemporary circus and performance.
She is co-founder and co-director of PaperDolls Performance Company. This year, Emily is conducting physical research, training in dynamic aerial rope and hand-balance, dancing, film-making and developing a signature production to be debuted in Dublin 2015, with support from the Arts Council.
