TDP LAB is a one-week comprehensive package providing a professional research and development environment for dancers. This year, the group of selected dancers work under the mentoring of Corinne Rochet and Nicholas Pettit, choreographers of company Utilité Publique and directors of Junior Company Le Marchepied in Lausanne (Switzerland).
The laboratory includes master-classes, workshops, group research and creation, reflection and discussion times, with an emphasis on the input that personal initiative brings into group choreography. TDP LAB impulses creativity, group research, exchange of skills, and an international flow of experience, contacts and information between dance artists.
The dancers attend and/or take part in all events at Tipperary Dance Platform: shows, showcases, forum, etc. At the end of the week the TDP LAB group shares with the audience some of the work realized during the laboratory.

TDP’16 LAB is funded by the Irish Arts Council under the Dance Artist in Residency awards scheme.
