Light Moves Festival of Screendance


Light Moves is Ireland’s first festival focusing specifically on screendance/dance film. It is a response to the vibrant and expanding field of screendance in Ireland and joins a range of similar initiatives internationally in providing a platform for new works and a forum for development and enquiry in this exciting area. Highlighting the collaborative intensity of screendance, Light Moves brings together national and international directors, performers, choreographers, composers, writers and cinematographers through a series of workshops and presentations. Combining invited works and open submissions, Light Moves will showcase the unique diversity of movement on screen via a series of curated events in the exceptional setting of the Dance Limerick Daghdha Space. Light Moves will award a range of prizes to both established and student works for those works submitted via the open call.

Light Moves is curated and directed by Mary Wycherley and Jürgen Simpson and is a Limerick City of Culture Legacy Project collaboration with festival partners Dance Limerick and DMARC and additional support from The Irish World Academy of Music and Dance. The keynote speaker is Douglas Rosenberg from the University of Madison Wisconsin.
