Emily Aoibheann: DI Residency

Mon 27 Jun 2022 - Fri 1 Jul 2022

Emily is a receipient of a Dance Ireland Residency Award.

Emily Aoibheann is an artist, aerialist and artistic mentor. With foundational expertise in music, performance and aerial dance, her varied background leads to creative, collaborative and original integration of multiple art forms.

Her work in 2021 is supported and funded by the Arts Council, Fingal County Council, Dance Ireland and the Courthouse Arts Centre.

My practice is interpersonal, resourceful and spatial, realised with a broad team of collaborators. The work is strongly influenced by artistic and technical elements of aerial dance and circus, inspired by a decade of creating work in these art forms. I have a specific interest in architecture and exploration of space(s), material experimentation and the symbiosis of human and object. With the body placed at the centre of my work, I use acts of permissive and playful irreverence to explore kinetic, energetic and structural transformation. This can naturally but not exclusively extend to include physical and emotional extremes in performance.

Works: Object Piggy (2013-2015); Papaveracea (2015); Sorry Gold (2019); Mother of Pearl (2019). Director of PaperDolls (2010-2013); Director of Cat's Paw Experimental Aerial Dance Meeting; Founder and Director Creation Aerial; Artist in Residence at The Courthouse Arts Centre, Tinahely, Co. Wicklow, ongoing since 2018.
