Press release · January 14, 2013


minutes in motion: first of 12 COMMISSIONED short films premieres on january 21

On January 21, Trip-Nós, a short dance film created by Sibéal Davitt, Emma O’Sullivan and Gavin FitzGerald will premiere online at www.danceireland.ie/21 as part of the DANCE IRELAND 21 "MINUTES IN MOTION" film programme.

MINUTES IN MOTION is a programme of 12 one-minute dance films that have been commissioned by Dance Ireland as part of its DANCE IRELAND 21 anniversary year. The 12 commissioned films will be premiered on the Dance Ireland 21 website on the 21st of each month throughout 2013. The 12 dance artists who have created the dance films span the breadth of the Irish dance community: from experienced choreographers to new dancers, from those who specialise in film to those creating their first cinematic work.

Trip-Nós, the first film to feature in the MINUTES IN MOTION series, is set in a pub, where two live gigs, a DJ set and a trad session, clash. In this short, sharp slice of modern Dublin, they gradually merge as one, the music and dance becoming infections as onlookers take to the floor.

Speaking about MINUTES IN MOTION, Dance Ireland Chief Executive Paul Johnson said “it’s exciting to see how Irish artists have risen to the challenge of portraying dance through the medium of film: this wondrous group of new films really capture the innovative vibrancy of dance artists in Ireland today.”



Visit www.danceireland.ie/21 on January 21 - and the 21st of each month – to see the films
