DI Residency: Fergus Byrne

Date:
Wed 16 Aug 2017 - Mon 28 Aug 2017
Time:
14:00 - 18:00
Venue:
DanceHouse

The studio will be used for preparation for shooting a dance film with funding from Dublin City Council.  This film will feature Fergus Byrne and Marion Cronin working with choreosculptures - mobile wooden frames with which the performers will move.  The location for the film will be a children's playground at night-time.  The studio will be used for rehearsal and shot planning with film-maker Michela Orlandi.  The playground is choses as a site of apparatuses normally used by children but unused at night.  The tension wrought by the frameworks' leverage upon the performer's bodies will be heightened by the activity occurring at night-time in a deserted playground.
