Firkin Crane Theatre, Cork: Masterclass with Junk Ensemble

Jessica Kennedy and Megan Kennedy will lead a Masterclass at Dance Cork Firkin Crane

Dances Like a Bomb

Junk Ensemble’s workshop (led by Artistic Directors Jessica Kennedy & Megan Kennedy) will begin with a gentle physical warm-up and will increase in vigour with a reliance on the use of release in the body, with space for improvisation. The workshop will be energising and physically inclusive, and include movement tasks, text prompts and writing/memory exercises, with a specific lens on the themes explored in their current touring production Dances Like a Bomb.

Suitable for all ages and abilities

Dances Like A Bomb by Junk Ensemble with performers Finola Cronin and Mikel Murphy runs at The Everyman Theatre Thursday 8 and Friday 9 February 2023.

Junk Ensemble was founded in Dublin in 2004 by twin sisters Megan and Jessica Kennedy. The company is committed to engaging diverse audiences through the creation and presentation of brave, imaginative and accessible work that sheds light on important human issues relevant to society today. Associate Artists at Project Arts Centre and previous Artists-in-Residence at Firkin Crane and Tate Britain, Junk Ensemble is a multi-award winning company that has built a reputation as one of Ireland’s leading voices in dance. Junk Ensemble frequently collaborates with artists from other disciplines to produce a rich mix of visual and performance styles that challenge the traditional audience/performer relationship. This approach has led to productions being created in non-traditional or found spaces as well as more conventional theatre spaces. The company often work directly with communities in the creation and performance of their work. Their work has toured to New York, Europe, and throughout the U.K. and Ireland.
