We were delighted to welcome Dance Artist Selma Daniel and Singer and Choir Conductor Cibele Sabioni to Draíocht this week for 3 days of Artist Support in our Studio.
Dance Artist Selma Daniel and Singer and Choir Conductor Cibele Sabioni are spending time this week at Draíocht to research and think about developing a new interdisciplinary idea incorporating sound/voice and movement aimed at young audiences.
Together, they are investigating how singing voice and movement can be combined and brought to the playful universe of children in an interactive and immersive way.
“We intend to explore and connect voice and movement practices, enable creative and interactive possibilities through sensory experiences using singing voice, movement, body percussion and playful games”.
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.
