Light Moves Festival of Screendance 2017 will open with 2 special events on Thursday 2 November. Screendance in the Gallery opens at 6pm and continues until January 2018 in Limerick City Gallery of Art. Moments of Movements is on from 8pm in Dance Limerick's church venue in John's Square.
The festival's opening event Moments Of Movement is a live music and dance performance by award winning Berlin-based documentary filmmaker Eva Stotz & Amsterdam tap dancer Marije Nie, with guests including saxophonist Cathal Roche, percussionist Erik Kooger and live sound designer Benjamin Jefferys. Moments of Movement tells the story of steps; our own steps, and those offaceless masses forced to be on the move globally. The piece combines the visually stunning and global film archive of Eva Stotz, with the virtuosic and evocative rhythms of Marije Nie.
Seating limited, book here.
