TDP’16 Forum

A public discussion

Sat 15 Oct | 2 pm
Excel Arts Centre, Tipperary
2 hr | Free of charge | Adults

TDP’16 Forum is a public round table where audiences and artists mingle to discuss topics relevant to the making of dance works. This forum is also a way to demystify artistic practise, to understand what motivates dancers and choreographers, and how they work. It is a way to perceive the realities, big and small, that artists are facing day by day, and the role that they take on in society. During the forum, the panel of guest artists from the Tipperary Dance Platform makes a short presentation on the selected topic, before opening the discussion to the audience.
