Light Moves Festival of Screendance would like to sincerely thank our community of artists and audiences who have been part of our journey since 2014. Your passion and energy has been vital in supporting us in the past, and we are delighted to announce a number of new projects that we hope will inspire and support you in return!
Thanks to recent funding from the Arts Council / An Chomhairle Ealaíon, we are excited to share today with you the first of these new initiatives.
Studio Light Moves is a development initiative emerging from Light Moves Festival of Screendance, aimed at investing and nurturing creative process and enquiry in dance, technology, and screen-based dance practices. As its first project, Studio Light Moves is thrilled to announce its 2021 professional development programme, Open Futures 2021.
Open Futures 2021 is a test ground and critical exchange platform for dance artists and media artists interested in exploring the intersection of dance with media and screen-based practices. The programme will enable 8 artists, consisting of 4 collaborating pairs, from the fields of dance and the digital arts, to investigate and explore the potential for interdisciplinary exchange that encompasses practices for the stage, gallery, installation, and outdoor settings.
