Family Values2004small


Opening on Saturday 18 July, 3:00pm 

25 is a collection of an images, videos and text celebrating Tara Brandel’s twenty five year long career in contemporary dance, including her nine years as Artistic Director of Croí Glan Integrated Dance. With reoccurring themes of gender, sexuality and strong female archetypes, Tara’s dance is influenced by her time spent in Berlin, London, San Francisco and West Cork. It pays respect to the two way influence of her nine year role as Artistic Director with Croí Glan Integrated Dance company, where Tara’s practice and experience has evidently influenced the company’s directive in creating cutting edge work with diverse bodies.


on Saturday 1 August, 6:30pm 

As part of Tara Brandel’s Retrospective Exhibition, Tara will be reviving two short solos from the 1990s: Speak Out (London 1990) is a short ten minute solo about one woman’s experience of homophobia. Dead End (extract) (Cork/Berlin 1995) looks at suicide, gender and our relationships to fathers.

Tickets available € 5 028 22090

Both these events are part of Tara’s year long Dance Residency at Uillinn supported y the Arts Council and Cork County Council
