Publication & research

This publication is the result of a meeting entitled Where Dance Meets Circus, which was hosted on 27th January 2017 by the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, centre of academic and performance excellence housed at the University of Limerick, in partnership with ISACS and the MA in Festive Arts

This event was an opportunity to gather choreographers, performers, programmers, researchers and policy makers, among others, to explore where one art form crosses into another, and how this is articulated. The aim was to provide examples of practice, provocation, and above all a space to discuss and debate the fundamental differences and similarities of these art forms, while considering how each can learn from and support the other to further develop the conversation.
