Philip Connaughton trained at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, London. He was Associate Artist of Dance Ireland 2013/14. In 2012 he was Artist in Residence at axis:Ballymun where he created Mortuus Est Philippus for Dublin Dance Festival.
His piece, Tardigrade, was twice nominated and won best design at Dublin Fringe Festival 2014. He recently created a new piece, Whack!!, in collaboration with Compagnie Kashyl in Paris and will tour this in France and Ireland in early 2016. Inspired by too many things, he is interested in dance that is both accessible, yet challenging, and as a performer he strives to push beyond categorisation.
