Emergence places young choreographers in a professional mentoring programme to develop a dance piece for performance. The choreographers will go through a journey of creating their own works of art to be viewed. Guided by professional Irish based choreographers: Ailish Claffey, Jessie Keenan, and John Scott, participants will not only get a performance experience but will go through the creation process of a dance. The works will be shown on the opening evening of the NOISE Moves Youth Dance Festival and at the DanceHouse as part of Dance Ireland's New Movement Series.
Over a four month period these young artists will develop their own work in a mentored environment. We also look forward to introducing the panilsts and participants to you over this time leading up to the showing of theirwork with us in DanceHouse on Friday 12 April, 4.30pm and as part of the NOISE Moves Festival 27 & 28 April The Civic and Rua Red, Tallaght.
