We’re thrilled that Linda Fearon is now part of the core team alongside our founding Artistic Director Tara, to lead the company into its next chapter. Linda, a dancer with a disability from Belfast, who trained with Luminous Soul has since worked with seminal artists in integrated and disability dance development including, Marc Brew, Caroline Bowditch, Claire Cunningham, Candoco Dance and Blue Eyed Soul. Linda first danced with Croi Glan in 2015; in her new role as Co-Artistic Director of the company she will continue dancing and couple that with her insight and experience as a disabled dancer to evolve the vision for the company so that it continues to raise the bar and highlight the value of diverse bodies in creating dance performance.
Also joining the company is Producer Gwen Van Spijk. Recently relocated from the UK to West Cork. Gwen brings extensive dance management and producing experience to the table having worked with key independent UK artists such as Rosemary Butcher, Nigel Charnock, Carol Brown and New Art Club, and with companies and organisations such as Dance United, Sadler’s Wells and Blue Eyed Soul.
