SHOWCASES

Dance showcases by the participants of TDP’13 LAB : Rebecca Daly (IRL) | Deirdre Griffin (IRL) | Valerija Kuzmica (LAT) | Chin Lau (MAL) | Sarah Ryan (IRL) | Nora Rodriguez (MEX) | Maria Novella Tattanelli (ITA).

TDP’13 LAB is a comprehensive training package providing a professional environment for a selection of young dancers in transition between academic training and professional practice. This 2013 edition is mentored by renowned French choreographer Hélène Cathala.

When young dance artists jump into the professional world today, they are very likely to be confronted early with the necessity to dig into their creativity and make their own work. In Ireland, where the number of active professional companies hiring dancers is very limited, many dancers still only have the choice between generating their own work or make their way into the extremely competitive European markets. TDP LAB is a space that confronts them with a professional level environment to enhance their real-life skills. But it is also a full experience where they can feed their own work, interact and network with peers of the same age as well as with experienced dancers and choreographers, and finally show their work in public.

This showcases may present anything from snippets of ideas to advanced research or pieces. All presentations are public studio showcases, and open to discussions.



SAT 19 OCT | PUBLIC FORUM WITH GUEST ARTISTS | 1PM-4PM | price: free of charge

How do we keep it real ? | Dance professionals talk about integrity within the dance practice

With the participation of Inta Balode (LAT) | Susanne Bentley (BE/NZ) | Hélène Cathala (F) | Paul Johnson (IRL) | Dylan Quinn (UK) | Liz Roche (IRL) | Alexandre Iseli (CH/IRL) | and the dancers of TDP’13 LAB.

TDP’13 organises a public forum, centred on the contradictions that can arise between our artistic motivations and the practical developments of professional dance practice. “How, do we keep it real?” Our guest artists will speak about how they manage to stay on the track of their original love for dance, what helps them to keep focus on what is essential for them in their art, and open a dialogue with dancers from the emerging generation.

During this forum, young dance professionals and future professionals will meet with experienced dancers and choreographers to hear presentations and discuss around the theme of integrity. In this meeting bringing face to face freshness and experience, we will share discussions to discover how each one of us maintains artistic and personal integrity: our true love for dance, sometimes buried under the energy consuming necessities of fundraising, project writing, logistics, marketing, networking, etc. What keeps artistry alive? What concessions are assumed to be necessary to trace our way on the artistic scene? Far from aiming for concepts and theories, the forum wants to offer an opportunity to share individual ways to split the costs and benefits in order to keep our creative hearts going.



SAT 19 OCT | DANCE VIDEOS PROJECTIONS | 4.30PM-5.30PM | free of charge

CRUDO (19MIN.) | ARG

Direction Mariana Bellotto, Choreography Mariana Bellotto & Laura Vago, audiovisual direction Céline Duprat

Argentinian choreographer Mariana Bellotto has shared artistic interactions and creations with Tipperary Dance residency on several occasions. We are proud to present the first European screening of «Crudo», her last video production, at Tipperary Dance Platform. Crudo is the spanish word for raw. A dancer observes «La orquesta» (the orchestra), a piece by late Argentinean visual artist Leon Ferrari. Ferrari’s raw approach, to politics and religion in particular, questioned some of Argentina’s most troubled cultural paradigms: the church, the dictature, foreign imperialism, the behaviour of middle class populations...



STEP (3MIN.) | CIPHER (7MIN.) | IRL-UK

Laura Murphy and Gemma Riggs

Steps and Cipher are collaborations between dance artist Laura Murphy (IE) and visual artist Gemma Riggs (UK). Step was filmed in the grounds of Ceauçescu’s Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania and uses the stark marble of the controversial building to frame the moving body. An atmospheric response to the material surroundings. Sound Design by J.J Maurage (UK). Cipher is a 7-minute film work originally made as a durational installation. Cipher plays with the trajectory of the body within a considered frame and uses repetition and change of pace to generate movement sequences, creating a metronomic effect.

 



SAT 19 OCT | DOUBLE BILL SHOW | 7.30PM | total duration: 1h30 | price: 10€

SHOW 1 | SUSANNE BENTLEY | BE-NZ | «BODY RHYMES»

Creation and performance: Susanne Bentley

How can spoken word be looped with unspoken word & movement? How does the body rhyme? When I dance, and see others dance, I often "hear" their dancing - either rhythmic, or melodical… Conceived, spoken and danced by Susanne Bentley. Body rhymes is made of a series of tableaux, in which the body and the spoken word rhyme for each other.

Hosted by Tipperary Dance Residency In May 2013 for a TRY! residency, Susanne is an independent artist on the Belgium dance scene, and also a renowned pedagogue, teaching for example at Impulstanz, Tanzquartier (Vienna), Ultima Vez (Brussels), Charleroi Danses (Brussels); Tanzfabrik (Berlin).



SHOW 2 | HELENE CATHALA | F | «LA JEUNE FILLE QUE LA RIVIERE N’A PAS GARDEE»

Choreography: Hélène Cathala | Dance: Jazmin Chiodi | Sound universe: Arnaud Bertrand

Built around an interactive sound system that responds to the dancer’s movement, the solo “La Jeune Fille que la rivière n’a pas gardée” mixes choreography and multimedia environment. This «young girl», a present-day Ophelia, presents her portrait in motion, a wild and joyful dance. Writing in the making… in which the interactive playground shaped by infrared sensors becomes the very matrix of the dance.

La Jeune Fille is a solo created by French choreographer Hélène Cathala, a landmark in the French choreographic landscape, known in particular since the late 80’s for her work with legendary choreographer Dominique Bagouet. Later co-choreographer of the very active company La Camionetta, she is currently director of company Hors-Commerce, and co-founder of Mouvement sur la Ville, Montpellier’s fringe dance festival.

«A fascinating show, not to be missed» (La Provence, March 2011)

«Fragile, furious, sometimes beyond the pale, and let’s say it: terrific» (Télérama, July 2011)


    
   
   
   
   
   




WORKSHOP & CLASS FOR DANCERS



FRI 18 OCT | MASTERCLASS | 10 TO 12 AM | price: 10€ or free if purchased with a performance ticket

HELENE CATHALA (F)

In this class, Hélène Cathala will teach the basis of her choreographic work through body explorations  (Body Mind Centering) and precise exercises related to her experience as a dancer. This includes principally: how to be grounded, precise and fluid, how to be conscious of your body volumes and your own architecture. How to create movement by connecting intimate sensations and space awareness. The last part of the class will be dedicated to the teaching of dance vocabulary taken from the most recent company work.

Hélène Cathala is a famous dancer and choreographer in the french landscape. In the late 80’s she takes part in the creation of the last six pieces in the company of legendary choreographer Dominique Bagouet as a permanent dancer and teacher, working in very close proximity with the choreographer. In 1992, a life-changing encounter with Trisha Brown for the creation of “One story as in falling” modifies her approach to movement, pedagogy and show conception. After Bagouet’s death she takes part in the launching of Les Carnets Bagouets, dedicated to transmit and revive his repertoire.



SAT 19 OCT | WORKSHOP | 10 TO 12AM | price: 10€ or free if purchased with a performance ticket

SPECIAL EVENTS | Dance Ireland 21 at TDP’13



14 TO 19 OCT | DANCE PHOTOS EXHIBITION | price: free of charge              

IRELAND’S LEADING DANCE ARTISTS CAPTURED IN STILL, LIFE

Photographic exhibition by Jonathan Mitchell

Created with the support of Dance Ireland and assistance from the Office of Public Works, still, life is a photographic study of 26 of Ireland's modern dance artists, including David Bolger, Cindy Cummings, Joan Davis, Mary Nunan, Liz Roche and John Scott, celebrating these unique artists and their contribution to cultural life in Ireland. A selection of these photographs will be on display at TDP’13.

Set in evocative locations around Ireland - doorways, car parks, under bridges, behind walls and trees - these are not only images of dance, but are snatched moments from somebody's story. Set together, these individually compelling images form a bold visual record of a community of dance artists without whom Irish cultural life would be significantly poorer.

This exhibition is on loan from Dance Ireland as part of Dance Ireland 21, a year-long celebration of 21 years as a resource organisation for dance - all dance - in Ireland. For further information about Dance Ireland 21 visit danceireland.ie/21. Dance Ireland on Tour is supported by RTÉ Supporting the Arts.
