Laura Sarah Dowdall of Running Blind Dance will run three site specific dance community workshops during July and August and create a filmed performance. 

The project will include:

  • a period of research and development looking at the history of Williamstown Martello Tower and its context on the coast in Blackrock Park
  • public engagement through three workshops in Blackrock Park inviting audience into the artistic process and learning about site specific practice and performance
  • A filmed dance performance, capturing the character, history and nuance of the buildings’ placement, architecture, surrounding environment and seascape
As part of the project, dlrcc will update and republish the 2012 book “Martello Towers of Dublin”.
