The successful applicant for the Arts Council Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award 2014: Collaborative Dance has been announced and the Bursary Award is to go to independent dance artist, Cathy Coughlan.

Her Dublin based practice encompasses live performance, dance media and collaborative practice. Most recently she directed and choreographed ‘Source’, a production for Dublin Fringe Festival 2014 which gained two award nominations. Her March 2012 production, ‘Aspect’, was the culmination of an Arts Council award at the Dunamaise Arts Centre, involving solo work, community collaborations and dance on film.

As a dance/visual artist working in a community context she has delivered projects/performances in association with RADE, CoisCeim Broadreach, Common Ground, Create, Focus Ireland, Fatima Regeneration project, Dunamaise Arts Centre youth reach (YES Scheme 2010), Dublin City Council, Dance Ireland, Laois County Council and Laois Partnership.

Cathy ‘s research and reflection will examine screen based technology as a device for collaboration in the community and study its potential to create a model for best practice. She will further investigate the possibilities of re thinking collaboration, in the light of her various recent projects, using the interaction between live performance and projected, particularly in relation to the role of the non-vocational dancer.

The Artist in the Community Scheme Bursary Award was set up to enable artists across artform with significant track record of collaborative arts practice to research and reflect on the foundations of their practice as well as contributing to general learning to the broader collaborative art sector. This year Create worked in partnership with Dance Ireland on the information sessions and the award.
