Bodies in Time - Embracing History in Screendance

Artistic director of CoisCéim Dance Theatre David Bolger (Falling Out of Standing), choreographer Fearghus Ó Conchúir (I’m Roger Casement) and dance artist and filmmaker Áine Stapleton (Medicated Milk) discuss their work and influences in this interview style talk.

In his work David Bolger embraces various dance styles as a creative device to demonstrate and articulate stories and emotions that are relevant to the landscapes in which we live. David pushes the boundaries in creating and presenting contemporary dance theatre to Irish and international audiences.

Fearghus Ó Conchúir is an independent choreographer and dance artist who frequently collaborates with artists and experts from other disciplines. His latest work, The Casement Project, focuses on the life of Roger Casement and reinforces the connection between Casement’s crossing of identity borders, his openness to the erotic stranger and the experiences of people today seeking to cross national boundaries.

Áine Stapleton’s poignant and beautiful work is rooted in dance and film and often draws from her personal story. In Medicated Milk, Stapleton, whose own narrative mirrors Lucia’s, shows a unique interpretation of the story through experimental dance and music.
