10 April 2013: German-Irish Dance Partnership

German-Irish Dance Partnership

As part of the German-Irish Dance Partnership with the Dock and Leitrim County Council, John Scott’s Irish Modern Dance Theatre and Steptext Dance Theatre from Bremen will undertake a programme of dance workshops at the Dock in Carrick on Shannon.

Starting in February, these workshops with community groups and dance professionals will culminate in April with performances of Steptext’s The Bog Forest and Irish Modern Dance Theatre’s The White Piece. Both productions are concerned with themes of migration and issues of cultural integration and this partnership provides the opportunity to push the boundaries of dance and to open up the conversation about these subjects.
