Registration open for the 2015 MeetShareDance Festival (Dublin, Ireland)

MP

Registration is open for MeetShareDance Festival in Dublin, 8.7.-12.7.2015.

MeetShareDance is a five day-long festival organized with Fluxusdance from Kildare. Integrated dance workshops, flashmob, festival presentation, meeting international dance professionals and a taste of Irish culture. The registration is open for teachers and participants.

MeetShareDance is a festival that promotes and aims to create an international dance network for individuals or groups that are working with dance and disability. MSD implements this by focusing on contemporary dance but welcomes all other styles, while always considering the new choreographic possibilities as well as new ways of dancing.

  • It is a festival based on a philosophy of »inter-exchange«. We hope to promote the exchange of knowledge and experiences, as broadly as we can, with workshops taught by teachers/movers who will also be participants in other workshops.
  • It’s not a classical (traditional) dance festival. It is not about attracting big names in the dance world, or supporting the hierarchies that exist in traditional festivals, where the students come and learn from many different »experts« in the field. MSD is about purely this: We want to MEET, SHARE and DANCE.
  • The intention of the festival is to gather and share new ideas, discover and chart changes in the world of dance and disability and to expose integrated dance as a strong tendency in artistic and every day life.

FOR WHOM

The festival is for all dance professionals and amateurs, choreographers, teachers, dance producers with different abilities. The festival is based on workshops of mutual exchange. You can be a teacher, but at the same festival, also a student. Each participant is invited to offer a short dance class, different dance techniques, a master class, a warm up session, whatever they want to share or investigate with the rest of the group.

THE AIM OF THE FESTIVAL:

·· To show the diversity of dancers and promote the development of professionals, inviting dance groups or individuals, national / international to learn from different proposals.

·· To promote both cultural and artistic exchange and growth from the creative encounter between dancers from different dance or artistic backgrounds.

·· To promote dance and diversity in a local environment. To generate interest in the local area of the festival by using a local public space (the city) and working with local artists, to create site-specific dance and performance works that come directly from the festival participants.
