STEPPING IN / STEPPING OUT
Commissioned under the Per Cent for Arts Scheme by Tullamore Town Council with support from Offaly Arts Office, 2012. The commission sought artistic engagement with professional artists in the areas of dance, drama and visual arts to work with young people from a new Local Authority Estate situated on the north side of the town of Tullamore.
I led this project, and co-facilitated workshps with Hip-Hop Dancer Charlie Dando (USA). My work was supported by Nick Bryson of Legitimate Bodies Dance Company who acted as my mentor throughout the project.
The short documentary Stepping In / Stepping Out created after the work in Tullamore, was screened as part of the Five Lamps Arts Festival, Dublin, in April 2013. It was screened during the Festival’s inaugural Film Festival, at Cineworld, Dublin. The documentary short-film was directed at edited by Gary Hoctor at Hello Camera
