Rocio Dominguez | Many Mes | Eadrainn / Between Us Residency

Rocio Dominguez | Many Mes | Eadrainn / Between Us Residency

Monday 13-Friday 17 March

This residency is part of Eadrainn / Between Us – a new programme of creative exchange that will build on the existing relationship between Dance Ireland and Dance Base Scotland to provide an opportunity to connect artists across both organisations and countries, to share practice, and to develop an ecology of exchange and collegial support.

During this residency, Rocio will continue with the process of creating her first solo “Many Mes”, which explores the constant search to culminate with a rite of passage.

Rocío immerses herself in the ideas of mourning and uprooting, and investigates a space of no-time. In this space, the dancer is trapped in an attempt to conclude a rite in order to move on to the next step.

On this creation, Rocio counts with the collaboration of composer Ingrid Bocek in the creation of original music, and visual artist Ross Ryder, with whom she explores the possibility of conceiving hologram effects within the piece.

“Many Mes” is one of three productions in the series that the artist calls “Steps towards myself”, which includes works in different formats.

Thursday 16 March | 14:00-16:00 | Company Class | Free | BOOK HERE

As part of her residency, Rocio will offer a Company Class to the Scottish professional dance sector. Join Rocio for an improvisation class focusing on authentic body language, openness and awareness of space!
