"Liz Roche’s 12-minute dances for Rex Levitates Dance Company were carefully crafted and deliberately understated, and confirmed her position as the one of the most thought-provoking Irish choreographers around"
Irish Times Highlights of 2009 by Michael Seaver


A collection of short works that premiered at SS.Michael and John's, Smock Alley in 2009 for Dublin Fringe Festival and revived in 2017 for performances at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght and Cork Opera House.

The works appear as a wash of colour, movement, rhythm and emotion; human embodiment as a dynamic event. The audience completes the picture.

12 Minute Dances was selected as one of the Irish Times Highlights of 2009 by Michael Seaver.
