While creating her recent solo dance, ‘Hear This Dance’, the question of how the piece would work with more bodies continually arose for Sibéal .  Using the same technological tools andpathways and improvisational tasks which were set up for the solo performance, Sibéal will take herself out of the performance and direct a trio of unique movers.

Each dancer will have a section to themselves in the performance space, with either a loop pedal or a single mic. They will use their voices and bodies to create a score in tandem with a musician, to which they will dance in unison. 

Sibéal is fascinated by the infinite ways in which the performers can loop and manipulate their bodies and voices with the help of technology.  She will invite dancers in to work with her and offer insights into the use of the loop pedal through improvisational tasks.  The choreographic process will lead towards building a rich ritual-style section of stylised choreography.
