Lighting Design for Dance Project

Liz Roche Company, The Lir Academy and Dance Ireland are collaborating on Lighting Design for Dance a project which brings together choreographers with lighting and costume students from the Lir's MFA in design in a creative and supported performance forum. 

This project grew out of an informal relationship between Liz Roche and the Lir Academy MFA lighting design programme. Liz has been workshopping new work with the MFA lighting design programme for the last three years and seeing the potential to develop this into a much wider professional development opportunity she approached Dance Ireland who agreed to partner the project. 

All three organisations are delighted to be working together to bring choreographers and design MFAs into a practical and supported space for the development of their skills and new ideas.

Following an open call, choreographers Dagmara Jerzak, Justine Cooper and Lucia Kickham are using the space provided to them by Dance Ireland to begin the process where they will work with the Lir MFA students under the mentorship of Liz Roche.
