Contemporary Class with Liz Roche Company

November 15, 2016 @ 10:00 - 11:45


Galway Dance Projects is delighted to present an opportunity to join Liz Roche Company’s morning class in advance of their performance of the “ground-breaking” BASTARD AMBER in Galway on November 15th.

Morning Class with Sarah Cerneaux, Liz Roche Dance Company
10am Galway Rowing Club
Tuesday, November 15th 2016
Admission FREE with a ticket to BASTARD AMBER (available here.)

Movement dynamics, rhythm and texture will be the focus of Sarah’s class and workshop.
Through both improvisation and structured exercises this physicality will be explored, exploiting notions of “centre” and “energy” in order to find freedom in the way of moving and fluidity whatever the effort required.

BASTARD AMBER is a ground-breaking dance production by the internationally renowned Liz Roche Company that draws inspiration from two of the great Irish artists of the modern age, poet WB Yeats and visual artist Patrick Scott. Filled with unforgettable imagery, live music, stunning design, and featuring sublime choreography performed by a stellar company of Irish and International dancers, the piece brings you on a profound journey into humankind’s spiritual quest.

(A co-production between the Abbey Theatre, Dublin Dance Festival and Liz Roche Company. Co-commissioned by the Abbey Theatre, Dublin Dance Festival and Kilkenny Arts Festival.)
