Liz Roche Company is committed to Nurture, Investigate & Stimulate


We engage, inspire and STIMULATE a new generation of dance audiences in Ireland, enabling people from all backgrounds to discover and enjoy our work. Over time, we want to instil in this new generation a profound understanding and appreciation of contemporary dance and to promote a deeper engagement between audiences and the process of dance-making and performance.

Creative Audiences

An annual collaborative initiative, Creative Audiences is an interactive audience development project which gives audiences the opportunity to engage on a deeper level with Liz Roche's work through a free programme of open-access workshops, talks, rehearsals and performances spread out across a three-month period in the lead up to company premieres.

Through this project, we aim to build a new generation of dance audiences in Ireland, allowing people to discover and enjoy our work and with a long-term ambition of instilling a profound understanding and appreciation of contemporary dance which demonstrates the highest level of artistic and technical quality.

Learn More About the Creative Audiences Programme



This programme engages early career dancers, enabling them to connect with Liz Roche Company and gain insight and experience of the day-to-day workings of the company.

Participants are invited to join from the very beginning of the creative process and are given the opportunity to follow the artistic and logistic development of a production from concept, to rehearsal and performance.

Focusing more on early-career artists, the Tenderfoot programme allows us to nurture the development of dancers and dance enthusiasts at the early career stage. This also contributes to the creation of clear pathways to professional development over a number of years.

We are proud of our partners.

Liz Roche Company is strategically funded by the Arts Council and supported by Dublin City Council
