Title: Conversations in Movement-Revisited

Rehearsal Director: Ursula Robb

Live Performers: Alice Gavigan, Heloise Gourdon, Itzel Limon, Aspasia Marmaritsaki, Keeva O’Neill, Nikola Zonenberga (Year One Contemporary Dance)

The work you are about to see performed stems from the idea of body impact possibilities in the game of rugby union—Avoid, Yield, Repel, Redirect and Repulse. By bringing these interactions away from physical contact, we allowed an inner movement journey to manifest. This added other ways of communicating, through negotiating the states of in-between contact, in response to the poignant cello score. 

Title: Mea Culpa

Dancers: Anja Nicholson, Amberlee Toumanguelov, Hannah Scully, Micaela Rocha, Ariel Merz Field, Lauren McGonagle, Emma Foley, Charlotte Bruce Chloe Brady (Year 3&4 Contemporary Dance)

Duration20 minutes

Choreography: Mariam Ribón & Cas

Costumes: Dublin Youth Dance Company

Music:  ‘No.3. Courante’ by Caroline Shaw, Roomful of Teeth, Brad Wells, ‘World to Come’ by David Land and Maya Beiser ‘Just (After Song of Songs)’ by David Lang, Trio Medieval, Agnès Vesterman, Garth Knox, Sylvain Lemêtre


Mea Culpa delves with the communal fear and the individual guilt, the effects of isolation and the longing for connection with others.

We live in a constant ‘unknown’ but we made plans anyway… we can’t plan ahead anymore… what is left? ‘Just the certainty of the self’ in a sea of uncertainties…

Title: Wild (Hip-Hop Piece)

Choreography: Rachel Shiel

Dancers: Heloise Gordon, Keeva O’Neill, Chloe McCarthy, Shauna O’Halloran, Lauren McGonagle, Bethany Hayes, Chloe Brady, Hannah Scully, Katie Walker, Micaela Roche, Charlotte Bruce, Anja Nicholson, Emma Foley


This piece is a rebellious response to feeling trapped, isolated and disconnected. It is permission to rage, be uncouth, unkempt and most importantly – magnificent.
