Let's dance with the stars!!!

The Birr Skies project is reaching its conclusion with a final, collaborative, movement piece.

Inspired by the astronomical bodies movements as observed from Birr, Dr. Niamh Shaw is creating a "celestial dance" and would like to invite you all to take part.

Working with the data collected, Niamh and her troop of volunteers will choreograph a suite of (easy) movements for an outdoor performance. The performance will also be filmed and available as a stand-alone film work.

Take a look below at the simple choreography sketch from Niamh:

So join us for the next rehearsal date of Sat Nov 20 (10.30am-12.30pm) & filming on Sun Nov 21 (afternoon time TBC)

This initiative is in collaboration with Birr Theatre & Arts Centre, Birr Tidy Towns, Birr Castle Demesne and I-LOFAR, an initiative led by Trinity College Dublin, and supported by the Creative Ireland Programme (2017 -2022) in partnership with Offaly County Council.
