Dance Writing Programme

by Róisín O’Brien

DanceLive 2020 will host a dance writing programme for writers interested in learning more about dance writing technique and working in the industry.


Participants will attend a writing workshop on Thursday 15th October led by dance writer Róisín O’Brien. This workshop will look at the specifics of writing about dance as opposed to other performing arts, and will include practical exercises for participants to explore new ways of writing.


Participants will be then be invited to respond to shows throughout the festival in reviews or more reflective formats: participants will receive feedback from Róisín and their responses will be published on the DanceLive section of the Citymoves websites. Participants will also be able to request short 1-to-1 sessions with Róisín to discuss particular questions or projects they are working on.


This programme is for those who already have a writing practice and would like to learn more about dance, or for those working within dance who would like to engage with movement through writing.
