For the second consecutive year, Dance Ireland and Dublin Circus Project have partnered to provide on two residency opportunities; Catalyst and Ignition.

This year's Ignition residency was awarded to Nicola Moran- she had a week long residency in September 2020.

Join us for a work in progress showing from Nicola - the seeds of this work began in our studios and will continued to be explored.

'Ignition residency is an incredible opportunity. My mentors were performance artist Amanda Coogan and dance director/choreographer Kevin Edward Turner.

Their mentoring plus the time and space, allowed me to explore concept development through the experimental conversations between body, form and material, initial drawings that adorn the body and then the body in turn informed. I am extremely grateful for this experience.'

Catalyst and Ignition can be used to resource a transition period for a maker, which would not otherwise be possible. Both programmes are an investment from Dance Ireland and Dublin Circus Project in risk and exploration. 

These platforms are for circus maker(s), creators, collectives, performing arts companies based in Ireland, who are focusing on seeding and developing new work.  Catalyst is a series of two enhanced, fully resourced, 2-week residencies with Dance Ireland in DanceHouse.  Ignition is a enhanced, fully resourced, 2-week residency at Dublin Circus Project  with exclusive use of their Dance Studio and shared access to main space. Both opportunities supports a model where artists are valued and paid and where makers receive the support and resources they need in a creative process to experiment, develop and work collaboratively.
