Delve: Dublin Dance Festival

8-12th May 2019


Shane"Dublin Dance Festival runs a FastTrack project which runs alongside the main festival.  Aligned with DELVE it allowed us to engage with the festival on multiple levels: as critical audience, as makers and artists, and as a growing inter-sector network of professionals.  We attended dance works from established and emerging dance artists and companies, both national and international.  It was particularly interesting to have facilitated critical discussion on the works afterwards, where our own ‘take’ and response was heard and challenged positively.

We had a session with the Artistic Director, Benjamin Perchet.  His approach and openness was refreshing.  He has a clear vision about the purpose and scope of the DDF, and was willing to discuss how emerging and established works can form a part of that, within the greater network of festivals in Ireland.  This nationwide view of festivals, where new work can be incubated, tried and tested is encouraging as an emerging director.

I was lucky enough to network with people from the fields of theatre and dance and can see myself collaborating with them directly on future projects, or at least tapping into their own expertise and network.

It’s a fantastic opportunity to network and meet like-minded people from sister sectors."
