Lisa Cliffe will be in residence at Dance Cork Firkin Crane this September
The goal of Lisa’s residency is to invest in a process of dance-making with artistic partners and children aged 8 to 11 yrs. Lisa wishes to deconstruct what she understands as ‘creative dance for children’.
A key inquiry Lisa holds close during the residency is ‘what is it to nurture and support a felt sense of play and playfulness in a dance experience for children and how is this being facilitated in the body for everyone?’
