Tipperary Dance Commissions

Enabling the creation of news works

TD believes in fostering dance artists by supporting their development, allowing them the time and resources to research and create new work. This, in turn, contributes to the development of dance as an art-form in Ireland.

Every year TD Commissions engages an Ireland-based dance artist to create an original dance piece, including a substantial fee, studio access, a residency and accommodation in Tipperary.

TD Commissions 2022 is delighted to announce Roisín Whelan, recipient of TD fellowship 2021, as this year’s commissioned dance artist. Her new creation, The Galaxy of Occupations, is a piece for young children that will be performed in primary schools for TD International Festival 2022.
