Éist invites us to listen to the dancer. A short film
Experimental dance created to explore the musicality of percussive dance. The soundtrack was created through a collaboration with Irish dancer Stephanie Keane and concertina player Cormac Begley. With sonic and gestural exploration at the heart of this film, Éist explores the intimate experience of the traditional Irish dance performer through sound and movement. It thus addresses the theme of identity, defying conventions and pushing the limits.
Stephanie Keane hails from Limerick where she began her Irish Dancing journey at the age of 4, competing competitively in Irish Step Dancing at World Championship level. Stephanie relocated to East Clare where she fell in love with the Sean Nos style of dancing. Through this immersion in Sean Nos, she has developed a unique style of percussive dance.
Festival de danse de Cannes
Created in 1985 by the City of Cannes, the Cannes - Côte d'Azur France Dance Festival is undoubtedly one of the largest international festivals. The creation of this Festival is part of a historic relationship between the City of Cannes and the world of Dance, thanks in particular to the dynamic generated by the opening of the Rosella Hightower International Dance Center in 1961. Since 1993, to the rhythm of a biennial, the event has found its identity, relying on numerous creations presenting new talents from the choreographic scene and the work of major international companies. With MOV’IN Cannes, the festival celebrates the meeting of contemporary dance and the 7th Art and highlights this magnificent relationship by launching an international dance film competition under the artistic direction of Didier Deschamps and Éric Oberdorff.
