International Night

Join the Irish Aerial Dance Fest at An Grianan Theatre, Letterkenny for a selection of acts from international artists on Wednesday 24th July at 8pm in An Grianán Theatre, Letterkenny.

Emma Poole is a Liverpool (UK) based aerial rope artist who has carved her unique expressive style through years of international performing, creating and teaching experience. She works against rope norms, exploring how contemporary dance can be interwoven seamlessly from the floor to the air.

She will be showing a 20-minute work in progress piece on dual rope exploring the complex relationships we have with our body. How we learn to seek our worth through appearance and what happens when that unravels.

Janelle Peters (USA) is a queer circus artist, circus coach, and psychotherapist whose work is focused on the wholeness and humanity of everyone involved.

There Were Two Spirals offers a meditation on what is always changing, and what persists. Set to an original composition by Miles Wilder, this 7 minute hoop piece invites the audience to experience deep settling and to lose touch with urgency

Carolina Cabañas has 22 years of experience in performing arts, mainly in contemporary dance, ballet Aerial dance and contemporary circus. She has participated in numerous national and international productions, founded the first aerial dance school and company in Costa Rica, and continues to teach, promote, perform, and research.

Permea is a work of contemporary dance and aerial dance that deals with the theme of resilience and questions how we relate to vulnerability. Using thin ropes to represent fragility and at the same time strength, resistance and acceptance. The work aims to show resilience as a way of resisting, of overcoming, and how through the permeability of vulnerability, it is possible to achieve it. Approximately 30 minutes.
