With Emily Aoibheann

4 weeks, 1 hour classes
8 places available

Learn the very basics of working with fabric including climbs, inversions, wraps and locks. Short and sweet, this 4 week course is designed for absolute beginners who want to try Aerial Silks for the first time. Drawing on Emily’s personal style and technical expertise, these classes provide an excellent introduction to the wonderful art of aerial dance.

Combining elements of pilates and ground based acrobatic movement, our Beginner Basics Silks course will help strengthen, lengthen and lighten the physical body while developing motor skills, coordination and proprioception for broader capacity of movement.

Suitable for students with no previous experience or improver students who want to revisit fundamentals.

About Emily Aoibheann

I am an artist, aerialist, experimental director of performance and other visual work, producer and educator. Although my expertise lies in circus and aerial, my varied background leads to a highly creative and original integration of multiple art and movement forms. In 2016, I received an Arts Council circus project award supporting self-directed research towards new methods of perceiving and producing aerial movement and performance. In extension, I presented a work in progress, Smiling Devil, at the Dublin Theatre, October 2017. I am director, owner and head trainer at Creation Aerial studio, Dublin.

About MMP: Movement, Material and Performance

‘Movement, Material and Performance’ is the title of a research project development throughout 2016/ 2017, developing a new methodology for aerial movement which draws on the unique relationship between circus and  industrial technology. My movement research draws on diverse practices including parkour, contemporary dance and martial arts. This project was funded by the Irish Arts Council. The written aspect of the research is being compiled for future publication.

I have presented this research in workshop form twice internationally in 2016, at the Silver Leap movement exchange forum in Berlin (July 2016) and at the Barcelona Rope Convention (August 2016). Elements of my research were used in the creation and implementation of an Anthropomorphic Structures workshop with first year Architecture students from Dublin Institute of Technology, in collaboration with lecturer and architect Dominic Stevens (2016/2017) and as part of Smiling Devil at Dublin Theatre Festival 2017.
