Cindy Cummings







Cindy Cummings is a dance artist (choreographer/performer/tutor) whose practice integrates dance, theatre and live art. Since 1986 she has created collaborative works with artists around the world for live performance, installation and film.

Unifying her practice are several themes: the vulnerable and mutable place of the body within contemporary society; the centrality of play and humor as tools of creative interrogation; a passion for scientific ideas, rigor and innovation; and a curiosity with how the body in 4 dimensional space/time, interacting with visual, sonic and dramatic impulses, can be used as both medium and text of human communication.

Cindy is based in Co Kilkenny where she works as movement director for KCat, an inclusive Arts Centre in Callan. She has worked on several productions with Kcat’s Equinox Theatre Company: The M House, The Water Boys, POWER: We All Come From Somewhere, and Out There. Most recently Equinox hosted ASSEMBLE, the first national inclusive theatre symposium at the Project Arts Centre in 2023.

Other recent projects include The Local with Asylum Productions, What I (Don’t) Know About Autism (Jody O’Neill/Abbey Theatre), facilitating inclusive dance workshops for Sibikwa Arts Centre (Johannesburg) and the Inclusive Dance Cork programme at Dance Cork Firkin Crane. Since 2007 Cindy has been a member of Aosdána, the affiliation of creative artists in Ireland.
