Linear Flow - Dublin Dance Festival 2015

By Dublin Dance Festival


Hello Funders!

Dublin Youth Dance Company is delighted to announce a new production Linear which we will present in Grand Canal Square as part of Dublin Dance Festival. 80 youth dancers from contemporary, jazz, hip hop and break dancing groups around the city will merge in an exhilarating performance against the backdrop of the Dock.

This fun, dynamic celebration is a playful response to the urban intensity of the Square and the calmness of the surrounding water. We offer a fresh, vibrant, and daring new perspective on the Grand Canal area in this energetic performance! We need your help to cover costume and production costs for this special once-off performance. Please have a look at our fabulous rewards and contribute what you can!

Linear has been devised and coordinated by choreographers Mariam Ribon & Karla Holden from the Dublin Youth Dance Company. Special thanks to Sharon Murphy and Inspirational Arts for their support of this project and its rewards.
