Create is working  in partnership with Dublin Dance Festival and RUA RED to explore the ideas and inspiration behind work featured in the DDF2014 programme, focusing on a number of linked vents -  WITHOUT, Dance on Camera and Moving Conversations.

WITHOUT

by Rosemary Lee with Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company

2 MAY - 31 MAY
Time: Mon to Sat, 10am – 6pm
Admission: FREE
Venue: GALLERY 1, RUA RED, Tallaght, Co. Dublin

This unique and hauntingly beautiful video installation directed by London-based choreographer, artist and filmmaker Rosemary Lee, is the culmination of her year-long collaboration with Echo Echo Dance Theatre. Filmed in 2013 from Derry's City Walls, it features 400 local inhabitants - from tea-dancers to skateboarders and school children to cyclists - as they dance, move, glide and reclaim the city streets, regardless of real and imagined boundaries.

The resulting seven-screen video projection, with specially comissioned cound score by Graeme Miller, captures both a spectacular panoramic view and an intimate portrait of the city.

Rosemary has been choreographing, performing and directing films for over twenty years. She has made beautiful and highly acclaimed large-scale works involving professional dancers and people from local communities within different city locations both in Ireland, the UK and abroad.

A viewing of WITHOUT will be included in the Create and Dublin Dance Festival event, Moving Conversations on May 21. The event will also include a keynote presentation by Rosemary on the development of this ambitious large scale work with Echo Echo Dance Theatre company, and a panel discussion on collaborative dance, participation and engagement.

DANCE WITH CAMERA

2 MAY - 24 MAY

Time: Mon to Sat, 10am – 6pm
Admission: FREE
Venue: GALLERY 2, RUA RED, Tallaght, Co. Dublin

The work of Rosemary Lee and screenings of a selection of the twelve shorts from the RTÉ 'Dance on the Box' series commissioned in 2006, 2008 and 2010.

'Dance with Camera' is an exhibition that explores the relationship between the camera and the choreographers and dancers who make dance for film. The exhibition features art works in film that exemplify the ways the camera had recorded moving, dancing bodies.
