Dancing Together is a commissioned dance film project by Clare County Council Arts Office entitled Some Destroyed Sites.
A collaborative engagement from an award-winning team of artists, the film has been created by choreographer Katherine O'Malley (associate dance artist with Liz Roche Company), Ella Clarke (director of Elle Clarke Choreography) and filmmaker Jason Byrne (director of Loose Canon Theatre Company).
Named for an academic article featuring the development of the new Shannon Airport runway in 1959, Some Destroyed Sites presents a filmed relationship between body and land in the Shannon delta. It is envisaged that this project should journey through time, generation, and culture to evoke this distinct community and its ghosts, heroes, and creators.
This project explores the resonances of mythology and history that remain here today in the hands and hearts of Shannon's people. The team is working with the local GAA and active retirement groups, among others.
