In 2022, Alexandre Iseli directs Rising Voices, a new experimental interdisciplinary space dedicated to artistic research, creation and professionalisation, with an emphasis on collective work.
The project has engaged three young dancers via an open call audition, giving them the opportunity to gain professional experience and pursue their transition into the professional world.
One of the main aims of this project is to develop a long-term vision approach, focused on relationship building, in-depth experience through practice, finding one’s voice, the construction of relevance through movement, and the elaboration of meaning-making through active dialogue and discussion.
Dance research, under the artistic direction of Alexandre Iseli, will be informed by voice practice sessions led by Musician-Composer Oscar Mascareñas, and in close collaboration with Artist-Dramaturg Javier Cuevas.
Rising Voices will lead to the production of a new contemporary dance piece, followed by a series of performances at Dance Limerick, DanceHouse and Tipperary International Dance Festival, and the creation of a dance-film.
Rising Voices is embedded in a synergy of local and national partnerships including Clonmel Junction Arts Festival, South Tipperary Arts Centre, Dance Ireland, Dublin, and Tigh Roy Ionad Cultúrtha, Tipperary.
