Sibéal Davitt: Inside the Rehearsal Room

In Studio Showing: 
Niall Vallely / Sibéal Davitt / Stephen Roddy - Thursday 14 September, 5pm, Studio 2, DanceHouse

Sibéal Davitt has beendeveloping new work throughout 2017 in collaboration with concertina player Niall Vallely and composer Stephen Roddy. This work explores traditional music and dance in a contemporary context with the use of a loop pedal, music effects and layering. 

Sibéal was inspired to create this work after performing 'Fógraím / I Proclaim' as part of 'Embodied' at the GPO in April 2016, which contained sections of looped and layered recordings of rhythmic steps. 

This collaborative project seeks to push boundaries and find an innovative way of pairing traditional music and dance.

This work is funded by An Chomhairle Ealaíon's 2016 Traditional Arts Bursary and supported by Dance Ireland.
