Thanks for joining us in Dublin!
The festival ran from Thursday 27 to Saturday 29 April and brought together the #Twenty23 selection of artists from around Europe to a professional international audience. In addition, former Aerowaves artist Oona Doherty presented Hope Hunt and the Ascension into Lazarus.
We welcomed 196 dance professionals from 42 countries.
In addition, this was an opportunity to meet the international group of journalists and writers of the Springback Academy and the producers and curators of the Startup Forum programme. Aerowaves also invited 10 dance makers based in Ireland, to be part of Spring Forward Artists’ Encounter, and participate in an intensive programme which included a professional development workshop, opportunities to network and access to the festival programme. On the morning of Saturday 29 April at Dance Ireland, there was a talk featuring Oona Doherty, Olga Dukhovnaya and Nick Bryson facilitated by Roísín O’Brien,
