The Light Moves Festival of Screendance, November 6 - 9, will be the first of its kind in Ireland and is dedicated to the art of dance film and video art with movement as a central theme.
Combining invited works and open submissions, the festival will showcase the unique diversity of movement on screen via a series of curated events in the exceptional setting of the Dance Limerick Daghdha Space. Light Moves is curated and directed by Mary Wycherley and Jürgen Simpson in collaboration with Dance Limerick and DMARC (Univ. of Limerick) with additional support from the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance (Univ. of Limerick). It is a Limerick City of Culture legacy project and is produced by Jenny Traynor.
The festival will include feature length films, short film screenings, panel discussions, symposium speakers and an extensive mentored and technically supported Dance Film Lab.
Keep an eye out for more information, coming in September!
