Tracy Bruen, Galway's 2015 Solo Artist of the Year, combines indie folk and blues with a diverse band of local musicians. They create a rich sound using various instruments and vocal harmonies.
DANCE NO 1, NO 2, NO 3 and NO 4 are non-story-based improvised performances with Brussels-based composer Lionel Kasparian and its experimental modular synth. Both artists explore the relationships and tensions between public-personal, inside-outside, and visible-invisible through raw movement and sound. This is the first of a series of short performances that take their inspiration from Magdalena Hylak's ongoing project DANCES FOR NOBODY, which is rooted in the Clifden area.
Magdalena Hylak is a dance artist based in Clifden. She is touring nationally and internationally as a core member of Irish Modern Dance Theatre-John Scott (IE) and Compagnie Nacera Belaza (FR). She is developing projects with the support of the Arts Council and the help of Galway Dance Project, Dance Cork Firkin Crane and Dance Limerick. She is the recipient of the Galway County Council Artist Support Scheme 2022 and the North-West Dance Residency Program.
