This Is It | 8 Dance Portraits: Laura Murphy Dance

Cork Midsummer Festival and Dance Cork Firkin Crane

A series of candid film portraits of eight iconic women in dance in Ireland, directed and choreographed by dance artist Laura Murphy.

Traditionally, the worth of a dancer’s career has been measured by time spent in the limelight. Yet a dancer’s experience of their career extends beyond the stage – influencing the personal, the mundane and the philosophical. Collaborating with filmmaker Pato Cassinoni, animator Alan Early and composer Irene Buckley, Murphy presents an innovative and multifaceted exploration of eight women in dance in Ireland: Jean Butler, Alicia Christofi Walshe, Lisa Cliffe, Finola Cronin, Joan Davis, Katherine O’Malley, Mary Nunan and Angie Smalis.

Challenging conventional views on dance and success, the portraits reveal the unspoken values that are often difficult to articulate and easy to forget, creating a unique living archive of untold stories of dance. This collection of multimedia portraits expand our understanding of dance beyond traditional structures into the personal realm.
