Part of Create’s remit is to encourage debate and discussion on the role of arts and society. Create programmes activities and events to increase the profile of collaborative arts across all art-forms, and seeks to further critical debates and provide a platform for productive and meaningful discussion on all aspects of collaborative arts, cultural democracy and participation in the arts. This year Create has partnered with Dublin Festival on talks connected to the Festival’s 2013 programme and those works which involved research and collaboration with different groups and contexts.
Moving Conversations consists of two discussion events curated by Create in partnership with Dublin Dance Festival.
Moving Conversations - David Bolger
Venue: Smock Alley Theatre
Dates: Saturday 25 May
Time: 2pm – 3.30pm
Tickets: Free, tickets available at the door.
In his latest work Missing (May 23-26) David Bolger has created a movement vocabulary inspired by key iconography and terminology related to missing persons. In this conversation, David invites audiences to engage with and contribute to discussion around this sensitive subject matter and offers an insight into the creative processes behind the work. Representatives from key support bodies will be in attendance and David will reflect upon his research journey and encourage reflection on this timely issue.
Moving Conversations - Fearghus Ó Conchúir
Venue: Fire Station Artists’ Studios
Dates: Thursday 2 May
Time: 5pm – 7pm
Tickets (which include a light supper): SOLD OUT.
Before the festival, Fearghus Ó Conchúir will host a supper as an occasion for conversation across disciplines and cultures in relation to the theme of ‘recovery’ – central to his new work Cure (May 15-16). This collective enquiry will give guests a chance to explore their own understanding of recovery, to gain insight into the ideas and artistic processes of Cure’s creation and to inform Fearghus in the crucial final rehearsal period before the show’s premiere. The supper event has already proved popular and is booked out.
