We invited 5 dancers who were working on different productions with the company to contribute to a creative blog over the weeks of the first confinement in Ireland: Sarah Cerneaux, Kévin Coquelard, Lucia Kickham, Glòria Ros Abellana and Ryan O’Neill.

This was a place to share thoughts and ideas on what it means to be a dancing body that suddenly finds itself having to be still.

Sharing movement with audiences and each other is part of what makes us who we are, so these weeks and months of confinement where so many rehearsals and performances were cancelled were going to be a challenge. We thought it was a good moment to pause, reflect and above all else, continue to share.
