Time:
10:00 - 18:00
Venue:

While in residence Siobhán will continue to develop a duet with her father, traditional boat-builder, Pádraig Ó Duinnín. This work examines questions relating to transmis-sion, language and tradition in the context of a father-daughter relationship. Together they will investigate the shared materials of body, time and space in contemporary and traditional contexts and explore the meeting of these elements through their lived physical experiences as makers.

During this period they will focus on developing a shared movement vocabulary stem-ming from the process of building a three hand West Kerry Naomhóg together, which they are currently finishing.

Siobhán and Pádraig will share a work-in-progress on 6 September as part of New Movements.

This work is generously funded by Arts Council (Next Generation Award) with sup-port from Dance Ireland and Firkin Crane.
