We have launched our Producing Dance series, led by Dance Ireland's Producer in Residence, Gwen Van Spÿk

Consisting of three workshops, complementary One-to-Ones, and an Artist Producer Exchange, this programme draws upon the experience and expertise of Artists, Producers and specialist consultants. Producing Dance is an opportunity to share and gather knowledge on some key aspects of a Producer’s role; better understand what the role involves, who Producers are and can be, and the value of Producers in the dance ecology.

These workshops are suitable for Independent Dance Artists producing their own work; Independent Artists working with Producers; and anyone thinking of becoming a Producer or taking their first steps as a Producer.

WORKSHOP 1: THE ARTIST AS PRODUCER
Monday 12 October 2-4pm

This first session will get under the skin of Producing with the aim of gaining a better understanding of

  • what exactly producing is
  • where do creating and producing meet
  • do you need a Producer, who can the Producer be, where do you find them
  • what skills and knowledge does the Producer need
