About the Festival

TDP’18 is Tipperary Dance Platform’s cutting edge international contemporary dance festival, dedicated to be a celebration for dance in County Tipperary and a festive event for the community.
TDP' stages works by Irish-based artists, and introduces works from artists from other countries who, in most cases, perform in Ireland for the first time. Besides providing a touring opportunity for established companies, TDP’ is a space of visibility for artists hosted as part of Tipperary Dance Platform's year-round programme (TRY! residencies, TDP’ LABoratories).
The festival is a unique opportunity for professional training and networking, with the TDP’18 masterclass programme (supported this year by Dance Ireland), which proposes eight classes from very experienced dance artists and world-class choreographers.
