22nd - 24th September 2023 at Echo Echo Studios and Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin
"Welcome to the second edition of the Tradition and Beyond Festival.
The festival focuses on artists who come from different backgrounds in the rich and varied streams of Traditional Irish Dance. They all continue to work from a deep commitment to it while finding ways that the tradition may develop, adapt and change as time moves on.
We again focus the festival on artists who are invited to be in residence at Echo Echo Studios and at Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin. We give these exceptional artists, time and space to reflect and create after which they will perform concerts of new work.
We also present Áirc Damhsa in a concert of dance and music and a video showing of a youth dance project by Áirc Damhsa founder Edwina Guckian. The invited artists will also teach open workshops and there's a "round table" discussion to finish off.
Come along to watch and join in. Great deals are available on festival passes - make a weekend of it!"
