The Many Bodies of Contemporary Dance
Gradcam, Dublin Dance Festival and Create
DanceHouse, Wednesday 19 May, 2010, 1-4pm

Create is delighted to have worked in partnership again with Dublin Dance Festival on an exciting  seminar talk that explored the many representations of the body through dance, questioning the politics of representation and movement. The panel included distinguished choreographer Raimund Hoghe and lecturer, dancer and choreographer Professor Tere O'Connor. Chair: Deirdre Mulrooney

The talk was in partnership with Arts & Disability Ireland, Dublin Dance Festival and Graduate School of Creative Arts and Media (Gradcam), and was supported by Dance Ireland.

Raimund Hoghe is one of the most influential choreographers working in Europe today. Since first becoming involved with dance as dramaturg to Pina Bausch, Hoghe has created numerous choreographies to critical acclaim. Following the presentation of his powerful Swan Lake, 4 Acts, during IDFI 2006, he returned to Dublin in 2010 to present Young People, Old Voices in which participants from Dublin appeared. Dublin Dance Festival and the Abbey Theatre co-presented Jean Butler in an engaging new work called Day by Tere O'Connor.
