Liquid Art

Liquid Art focusses on developing alternative performance styles that rely on highly visual and non-verbal storytelling, with an emphasis on embodied expression.  The project brought local and European artists together during a residency focussed on peer-to-peer learning and ‘hot housing’ of ideas. The artists will had sessions in observation, discussion and enactment, benefitting their own practice, their engagement with peers and the wider community.

The local artists are multi-disciplinary: Kim Doherty (visual), Maura Williamson (literature and theatre) and Patricia McKenna (visual). Our Estonian partner Liquid is nominated by invited artist Maria Kerin (dance and performance).
