Selma Daniel, Dance Artist
Will be in residence at Draíocht in August researching family diversity and the benefits of being part of a family with different structures. For this residency we will work with dancers Deidre Griffin and Kevin Coquelard in the studio and in a new adventure Selma will be working simultaneously with dancers Tonya Sheina and young performers Dara 8 y/o and Mira 5 y/o from Skype, Tonya, Dara and Mira are based in Derry and they will be collaborating with us from ECHO ECHO Dance Studios in Derry. Visual artist Órla Kelly will also collaborate with us in the process of researching Paper Plane and Jessica Kennedy is my mentor for this process.
For this research children collaborated with me drawing the pictures of their families and adults had collaborated filling out a survey in the theme of contemporary families. Children and adults can still be part of Paper Plane Project by clicking HERE.
Paper Plane project is sponsored by Arts Council, supported by Dance Ireland, Draiocht and ECHO ECHO Dance Theatre.
