Draíocht welcomed Matt Szczerek and collaborator Simone O'Toole to the Studio, for the first research sessions into a new dance piece using body contact, hip hop and contemporary dance, featuring animalistic explorations of relationships and commentary on boundaries and social constructs, created within the dance communities.
This lighthearted, dynamic and playful duet will feature humour, rants and analysis of opinions that maybe don't matter as much as we might like to think they do!
Draíocht is recognised as a creative hub and laboratory space and invests significantly in the development of artist's practice by the provision of benefit in kind support such as space, technical support, admin/marketing support and specialist expertise. We offer a wide range of opportunities to artists i.e. commissions, residencies, artist studios/rehearsal space, co-productions, co-commissions, seed funding, mentoring.
Our Artist Support Series, launched during Covid-19, has helped 79 artists in 2020, 50 artists in 2021 and 74 artists in 2022, with the provision of free rehearsal and creative space. Space to rehearse, write, create, film, dance, think & plan ... whatever is needed!
With thanks to our funders Fingal County Council & The Arts Council.
