Yasmin will spend two weeks in our DanceHouse studios as part of her National Dance Residency Partnership.
This is a partnership initiative between Dance Ireland, Dance Limerick, Firkin Crane and Galway Dance Project to provide a networked support to a choreographer in the production of new dance work.
Yasmin Mello is a Dublin based choreographer, director, performer, researcher and a dance and pilates instructor. She started her training from a young age and has always been interested in learning movement from a wide range of perspectives and dance artists having trained with important national and international names including Nora Esteves, Yelle Bittencourt, Alex Neoral, Esther Weitzman, Maria Alice Pope, Tadej Bdrnik, Deborah Colker, among others. Since arriving in Ireland Yasmin has continued to train and improve her skills by engaging with artists like Steve Batts, Sarah Jane Scaife, John Scott, Mihaela Griveva, Amanda Coogan, Loretta Yurick and Robert Connor.
I believe dance and movement can be a primary channel of communication among people. The fusion of storytelling and movement can open a new dimension in which we can read between the lines and be able to find ways of understanding what isn't said. This is a chance for me to allow my practice to reach as many people as possible and be able to share universal emotions through the media of an universal language. And that for me is what dancing is all about.
