Sunday 14th October 12pm – 4pm
Junk Ensemble will work with physical, verbal and non-verbal tasks to create tools for devising in dance theatre. The workshop will focus on creation of individual and group material through choreography and text using music-led exercises. This workshop is open to dance artists, choreographers, theatre practitioners and directors, film directors, dance and theatre students.
Junk Ensemble is an award-winning Dublin-based dance company founded by joint Artistic Directors and identical twin sisters Megan Kennedy and Jessica Kennedy to create works of brave and imaginative dance theatre. Previous Artists in Residence at Tate Britain and current Cork Dance Artists in Residence at Firkin Crane, the company have won Best Production Award, Best Design, Best Lighting Design, Best Performer, Culture Ireland Touring Award, Excellence and Innovation Award and are listed a Sunday Times Highlight. Their productions are often created in collaboration with artists from other disciplines to produce a rich mix of visual and performance styles that seeks to challenge the traditional audience performer relationship. This approach has led to productions being created in non-traditional or found spaces as well as more conventional theatre spaces. Junk Ensemble’s work continues to tour nationally and internationally. Junk Ensemble are Project Artists, an initiative of Project Arts Centre. www.junkensemble.com
