Dance Ireland, in partnership with Galway Dance Project and First Fortnight, have come together on this dance programme curated by choreographer Karen Gleeson and facilitated by Irish and international artists.
This year, participants can take part in a series of workshops and events focused on dance and well-being. The events are open to all and will take place live in Dublin and Galway and online via Zoom.

For this illustrated lecture, performance artist Amanda Coogan will explore endurance, duration and controlled instability in her work. The long durational aspect of her live performances invite elements of chaos; with the unknown and unpredicted erupting dynamically through her live artworks. The body as a site of resistance is the centrality of Coogan's work.

Many of the themes that inform the genre of performance art; political engagement, Feminism, Social Justice and Conceptualism run throughout her work.  This reflective lecture will lift the bonnet on her process and examine some works through the lens of wellness and the personal toll and effect on mental health.
