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).

Following the residency, the artists will refine methodologies by working with young people nominated through existing linkages with Cavan Institute, Cavan Multicultural Network, Hosanna House, the Cavan Polish Community, Cadolemo the Orange Order Support Organisation and Tullacmongan Resource Centre.
A short durational performance episode will result from the project.The project is supported by Cavan County Council through the Social Inclusion and Arts Office.
