Cork City Dance Artist-in-Residence Helga Deasy is seeking participants for her project Tales of Motherhood.

Tales of Motherhood is a creative project that gives space and expression to the personal experiences of the many aspects of being a mother. It invites those who identify as mothers and grandmothers to creatively explore their everyday experiences of motherhood through movement and creative writing.

✲ Do you identify as a mother or grandmother?
✲ Do you delight in creativity?
✲ Do you enjoy movement, creative writing and film?

Over the course of four workshops we will explore, share and shape our creative findings into dance and poetry. In two further sessions we will perform what we have created for camera, which will be edited into a short film.
Dance artist and choreographer Helga Deasy will guide the creative process collaboratively with writer and poet Neo Gilson and film maker Catarina Araujo. Composer Justin Grounds will write original music for the film.

Key project dates:
• Info sessions: Wednesday April 20th, 5:30-6:30pm online on zoom and Friday April 22nd, 4-5pm in person at Firkin Crane
• Workshops: Four Saturdays on April 30th, May 7th, 14th & 21st, 3-6pm at Firkin Crane
• Filming: Saturday, May 28th 2-6pm, location tbc & 1 half-day to be agreed individually

This project is free of charge. Commitment to all four workshops and the two filming sessions is a requirement to participate in the project.
