Rising Voices is an emotionally engaging artwork that stages the attempt of individuals to elaborate collective meaning through a ritual journey that progressively consolidates the bonds of the group.
This new contemporary dance piece is driven by the urge to ‘give people a voice’. The quartet features three emerging young dancers under the artistic direction of Tipperary Dance Artistic Director, Alexandre Iseli. A collection of restless ritual attempts, Rising Voices combines creation with professionalisation in an interdisciplinary collaborative process.
