About the Festival

Tipperary Dance Platform’s TDP’17 is a cutting edge international contemporary dance festival dedicated to be a celebration for dance in County Tipperary and a festive event for the community. 

The Platform also creates resources for professional companies and dancers from Ireland and abroad. TDP' stages work made by Irish-based artists, and introduces works from Artists from other countries who, in most cases, perform in Ireland for the first time.

Besides providing a touring venue for established companies, TDP' is also a performance space for artists who are hosted during the year as part of Tipperary Dance Residency schemes such as TRY! residencies, TDP' LABoratory, and production residencies.

Apart from delivering high quality contemporary Art, the festival involves the local community by inviting adults and children to take part in dance classes taught by international artists, all included in a very low price package.
