A falling ballet is Róisín’s current project, which has been in development since February 2019.
Thanks to Open Project Funding from Creative Scotland, A falling ballet will be developed into a production ready performance.
A falling ballet invites the audience into the space, amongst the whirling dancers, in an attempt to bring people physically closer to ballet and offer new perspectives on the art form.
The project has been developed from residencies at Citymoves Dance Agency SCIO in Aberdeen, and Summerhall and Dance Base in Edinburgh.
A falling ballet was shown as part of Summerhall’s Scratch Night in February 2019, at Pianodrome in August 2019 during the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and at Dance Live 2019.
