This Tipperary Dance Platform initiative is an international place for investigation and research, without travelling. A brand new way to work together: ten venues, organisations and festivals across Europe, eight dance studios, nine mentors host eight groups of dancers.
Artists interact physically in the studio and virtually via a meeting application. On land and online. Minimising risks, minimising air travel but maximising encounters: this could be the motto of the Hotspots LAB, a transnational investigative laboratory that gathers no less than 50 artists in four different countries. The LAB reiterates values of place and physical presence, while fully respecting public health advice and regulations. The Hotspots LAB is a space where artists can reassert the value of their work and experience through formulation, shared expression, shared practice. A collective place where artists can see themselves through the eyes of others. An experience than enables and values dance discourse and dance experience.
