Liz Roche Company and Dublin Dance Festival would like to invite you to become a member of their Creative Audiences group. Between March and May the group will meet for a series of creative events allowing for a deeper engagement with the work of Liz Roche Company and Dublin Dance Festival. Events will include workshops, talks, rehearsals and performances.
This fantastic opportunity gives insight into the company’s creative process on their recent work The Here Trio, as well as connecting the group to other amazing contemporary dance pieces at this year's festival. No previous dance or movement experience is required, though those with dance experience are welcome too! Workshops will create opportunities to explore key themes in the work including memory, empathy, what it is to be “here”, and relationships between politics and psychology on this island and beyond.
The programme creates opportunities for discourse, as well as for responding creatively to the work.
All we are asking for is your commitment to the group and your openness to respond creatively to the dance experiences on offer.
CREATIVE AUDIENCES is facilitated by Jenny Macdonald and Liz Roche with members of Liz Roche Company.

In response to the lock down this exciting 3-month audience engagement programme from Liz Roche Company and Dublin Dance Festival moved online. We have been able to offer our 40 participants a series of weekly practical creative tasks, talks and feedback sessions, with the overall programme offering a deeper insight into the art form of dance, with opportunities to discuss and to respond creatively to dance works by Liz Roche Company and a range of choreographies presented at Dublin Dance Festival.
Facilitated by Jenny Macdonald and Liz Roche with members of Liz Roche Company, this opportunity has given our participants insight into the company’s creative process on their recent work, The Here Trio, exploring key themes such as memory, empathy, what it is to be “here”, and relationships between politics and psychology on this island and beyond.
