Ceist Residency at Dance Cork Firkin Crane

During her residency Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín will begin researching a new piece looking at the portrayal and lived embodied experience of women's bodies in songs and poems as Gaeilge over the last 100 years. Siobhán will work with expert collaborators using modern Irish poetry, contemporary dance and music to energise and enliven, through dance, this wealth of literary insight.
