This work is a co-commission by Tipperary Dance Platform and Tipperary Heritage Council. The commission invited a site-specific exploration through dance and movement responding to a selection of natural environments. The resulting collection of film works will be experienced in libraries across the county allowing visitors to discover and ask questions about our relationship to some of County Tipperary’s unique places.
The work emerged in close relationship with these natural environments, all of which have been allowed to restore to their native growth and ecologies. A sense of time, place and relationship unfolds as the dancers, environment and filmmaking find their balance together on site. The work negotiates time, scale and terrain while reflecting on ways of seeing, belonging and connecting to our natural world.
A site-specific exploration through dance, movement and film responding to a selection of County Tipperary’s unique and natural environments and places. The work unfolds in a series of 5 screendance episodes or visual poems, each with their own identity yet all intrinsically linked.
