What Next Dance Festival, organised by the EDN member Dance Limerick, will take place from 8 to 11 February 2023 in Limerick, Ireland. The festival brings together a dozen dance artists at the cutting edge of their fields for a four-day programme packed with fresh and vibrant performances, talks and installations.
The Festival is an important platform which shines a light on new creations from both Ireland and abroad. It enables artists to connect with local audiences and provides a special space for interaction and creative exchange.
This year, Dance Limerick is delighted to co-host with Dance Ireland and the EDN Network, a two-day atelier Dancing on the Edge: Peripheral Practices which allows us the opportunity to welcome international peers and artists to Limerick and for them to see some of Limerick’s best cultural spaces.
A rich programme of performances this year includes VR performance Francis Footwork by CoisCéim Dance Theatre, a video installation by dance artist Angie Smalis at the Limerick City Gallery of Art, a site-specific piece by Magda Hylak at Thomas Street Car Park as well as three mixed bills at Dance Limerick Church from Irish and international dancers including Aerowaves artists Alexandre Fandard and Courtney May Robertson.
