In 2022, Light Moves welcomed six Studio Light Moves / Open Futures artists to their 2-week residencies focusing on dance and technology. The three pairs of artists were selected from an open call following outstanding and innovative applications.

The residency offers a unique opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration exploring expanding possibilities that emerge when dance and technology meet, alongside mentorship and technical support. The 2022 artists were resident at Dance Limerick, Limerick City Gallery of Art, and at The Irish World Academy of Music & Dance at the University of Limerick.

The 2022 artists are Kate Haughton and Eoin Robinson (IRL), Serena Manganini and Harriet Macauley (UK) and Jacinte Armstrong and James Forren (CA).

Studio Light Moves: Open Futures is an annual residency opportunity for artists across multiple disciplines. The programme is a platform for dance artists and media artists interested in collaborating to explore the intersection of dance with media and screen-based practices.

Open Futures is a Studio Light Moves project in partnership with Dance Limerick, Dance Ireland, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Digital Media and Arts Research Centre and the Irish World Academy at UL.
