- Philip Connaughton
My class is a practice based class very much geared towards performance. Shifting between a more choreographed company vocabulary and different improvisational tasks, the week will focus on harnessing and developing a disinhibited movement practice with dynamism and specificity at its core.
Philip Connaughton is a choreographer from Dublin.He trained at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance in London. He was artist in residence at axis:Ballymin, associate artist at Dance Ireland and is resident artist at Project Arts Centre. He formed Company Philip Connaughton in 2014.
