Welcome
MOL AN ÓIGE AGUS TIOCFAIDH SÍ….
this Spring, Firkin Crane plays host to a
number of dance initiatives for, by and
with children.
Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín follows last year’s fantastic
Super Moves, with a new performance project,
UNDER YOUR NOSE, with young performers aged
8-12, on Skiddy’s Castle Plaza. Devised by Siobhán
as part of her Associate Artist programme for
Cork’s Dance Artist in Residence at Firkin Crane,
the project also involves composer Neil Quigley
and artist Luke Sisk, and is an amazing opportunity
for boys to explore their city and their creativity.
Currently recruiting! Boys are also welcome to
join FC/DC BOYS DANCE CLUB, which continues
its weekly sessions, led by dance artist Maria
Svensson, with guest workshops from visiting
male dance artists.
Fidget Feet brings its spectacular, globetrotting, aerial dance to Firkin Crane in March,
with STRANGE FEATHERS, a performance
specially for audiences aged 18 months to 7 years.
Older audiences also get a chance to enjoy the
company at the evening’s HANG ON, a virtuosic
struggle between the sexes.
Cork Youth Dance Company returns in April
with its second performance, BREAKING POINTE,
showcasing the talents of its young performers,
who are drawn from dance schools across Cork.
We also have two exciting new research
projects on dance and young people in residence.

As well as ongoing WEEKLY CLASSES, we have

Coming from Oakland, California, Snake Talk is a zany,
