Open Call Project: Dancing Landscapes of Sligo

This project contains four core elements of which merge together, forming a creative piece that represents Sligo’s cultural landscape, figuratively and literally. The four core elements are original composition music, interpretive dance, modern cinematography, and the landscape of Sligo itself. Using these elements, the project will showcase Sligo’s creativity and environment at five key locations which are Benbulben (Mountain), Streedagh (Coast), The Glens (Forest), Innisfree (Lake), and Sligo Town (Urban).

The locations will frame the creative performances of a choreographed dancer/s from Sarah J Middleton’s ‘Beat It’ Dance School, who will be dancing to an original compositions piece performed by multi-instrumentalist Luke Devaney from ‘The Blue Room Recording Studio’. These performances will be captured by TemperHound Production’s own filming crew, with the assistance of established film director Drew Maitland, using modern cinematography techniques to create a stunning visual display.

The project will involve a small crew and develop the project over virtual means at every possible opportunity. The project hopes to achieve a visually impressive display of various Sligo based artists coming together to express the emotional experience that Sligo county has to offer from both an impressive natural environment and the creativity of the people who belong to it.
