IntraSpaces is a creative partnership with The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance at University of Limerick (IWAMD) and is an experimental space for collaboration on research, performance and pedagogy. Liz Roche Company is Company- in -Residence at the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance and spends up to one month per year developing new work on campus. This partnership model between the university and professional dance organisation supports the development and dissemination of dance knowledges across the Irish and international arts and research landscape. Interdisciplinarity is key, with a view to creating opportunities for shared projects to intersect with a range of Academy faculty, students and courses.
LRC offers open access to students into its working practices supported by the expertise of the company dancers, associated dance artists and creative collaborators in sound, light, set, costume and dramaturgy.
Particular alignments for shared performance projects are envisioned with the MA Contemporary Dance Performance and the new MA Composition and Creative Music Practice.
Modes of Capture Symposium
Forming part of the IntraSpaces programme, this is an innovative artform development project which brings together dance artists, academics and advocates from all over the world in an annual series of talks, workshops and informal performances. Established in 2019 the symposium aims to challenge perceptions among experienced dance practitioners and push the boundaries of what contemporary dance represents for people in a global modern society.

Liz Roche Company partners in a newly formed research network headed up by researchers from the University of Limerick, University College Cork, Coventry University and Goldsmiths, London.
This research network funded by the Irish Research Council and UK Arts and Humanities Research Council enables us to investigate the potential seismic shifts in how dance is created and presented as well as providing a platform for innovative thinking and development of possible solutions. This network will help us to utilise new and innovative technologies, stimulate new audiences, and collaborate with artists and international partners to be at the forefront of new thinking for live perfomance both virtually and in live settings.
