This project will bring together local and European artists during a residency period that will result in peer-to-peer learning and 'hot housing' of ideas. Liquid Art will develop alternative performance styles that rely on highly visual and non-verbal storytelling, with an emphasis on embodied expression. The artists will have opportunities for observation, discussion and enactment, benefitting their own practice and their engagement with peers and the wider community.
In addition to the Estonian partner, Liquid, and artist, Maria Kerin (dance and performance), the project will involve a multidisciplinary group of local artists: Kim Doherty (visual), Maura Williamson (literature and theatre) and Patricia McKenna (visual).
Following the residency, the artists will work with young people nominated through existing linkages with the Cavan Institute, the Cavan Multicultural Network, Hosanna House, Cavan Polish Community, Cadolemo (the Orange Order support organisation), and Tullacmongan Resource Centre.
