Firkin Crane Theatre, Cork: Weekly Professional Class with Tara Brandel (Croí Glan)

Tara Brandel will teach weekly professional class ahead of Croí Glan's Unseen this May.

Taking the methodology and themes of Unseen, Croí Glan's latest multidisciplinary dance work, we will use improvisation to explore ecosystems and invisible forces. Spanning 4 years of interdisciplinary collaboration between choreographer Tara Brandel, and abstract painter Stacey White, we will share some of the movement research we have been working on.

Led by Artistic Director Tara Brandel, Croí Glan is an award winning Contemporary Dance Company celebrating diverse bodies on stage, and a flagship company for EDI with a case study in the new AC EDI handbook.

Creating 22 works since 2006, Croí Glan has toured nationally and internationally: highlights of the company’s body of work include Tara Brandel’s Sputnik for the Unlimited Festival/Cultural Olympiad London Southbank 2012, Liz Roche's An Outside Understanding (Dublin Dance Festival 2013, nominated Best Performers Dublin Fringe 2012), the multi award winning short film Armour Off! (in collaboration with Invisible Thread, Caroline Bowditch and Linda Fearon), and David Bolger's On the Wall (performed in 25 locations including Miami, San Francisco, Minneapolis, Barcelona, Bern, and Turku).

Croí Glan’s most recent productions include TILT, an integrated aerial dance show (Cork Midsummer, Tipperary Dance Festival and Dancer from the Dance Festival); and In Place a site specific performance made at IMMA. CG is EDI Company in Residence at Uillinn Arts Centre 2022-25.
