One event on Friday 18th November, 2022 at 10:00

A performance about friendship, trust and building resilience together.


How are you?

Do you want to play with me?

An energetic dance piece where two strangers meet, connect and celebrate their new friendship. Together they look to the future with hope, optimism and an appetite for life.

Up-Close is about trusting each other, building resilience together, and letting go of the past.

A highly physical dance show blending contemporary and street dance styles, peppered with humour, Up-Close is suitable for all ages.

UP-CLOSE was commissioned by Tipperary Dance under The Arts Council Arts Grant Funding and premiered at Tipperary Dance International Festival 2021. With the support of Tipperary County Council, Tipperary Excel Arts Centre and Tigh Roy Ionad Cultúrtha. Additional funding from Baboró Pathways to Production.
