Choreographer Helga Deasy presents excerpts of her studio research while in residence with Dance Ireland into the notion of identity and otherness.

Through the moving body her work explores the space between self and other, the meeting ground between people, its potential and authenticity. It questions how we construct identity and otherness in interpersonal relationships and examines our search for mutuality, our need for connection and our struggle for autonomy.

Drawing from the contemporary developments of Rudolf Laban’s principles for the performing arts (Choreology), Helga is working with dancers Katrina Galvin, Kevin Hayes, Sara Hernandez and Connie Jane Lovell.

The research is supported by an Arts Council Dance Bursary.
