Traces from elsewhere: Nomadism, artistic identity and contemporary dance in Ireland

Roche, Jennifer (2015) Traces from elsewhere: Nomadism, artistic identity and contemporary dance in Ireland. In Atelier: European Dance House Network, 11-12 December 2015, Dance House, Dublin. (Unpublished)


This keynote presentation explores the connections between nomadism and artistic identity formation by interrogating the creativity that migration elicits and the narratives that surround it. It is further situated in the complex role that emigration has in Irish culture questioning whether contemporary dance in particular is emblematic of this socio-cultural phenomenon. These questions are anchored through descriptions of a creative project currently underway that draws together artists from Ireland and Australia to explore how we manage absence and presence in a globalized yet increasingly virtual world.
