Adjacent Meridian Point,
Ahead of Friday’s show, Hannah Slattery reveals how she got hooked on the Wicklow ScreenDance Laboratory beat…
Coming to Greystones as part of the Wicklow ScreenDance Laboratory’s Whale show, Hannah Slattery first began dancing at the age of 3.
And her feet really haven’t touched the ground since.
Combining live dance and filmed choreography alongside invited fellow artists, the WSL’s Artists Salon promises to be a ‘live, lively, informal, inclusive and respectful gathering of artists, audience and panel who will interrogate to enquire, consider and reflect on the works shown‘.
So, think TED Talk. With lots of dancing.
Before Hannah jets in to The Whale on Friday, April 15th, we asked her when this jitterbug first bit, and who are the dancers who shaped her world…
I knew I wanted to be a professional dancer my entire life, and that childhood spark led me to study dance for my undergraduate education in the States.
I was fortunate enough to have a career in the US and abroad, performing in theatre, festivals, cruise ships, theme parks, resorts, and as part of the first resident performing arts company in Doha, Qatar.
I then went on to pursue my masters in Cultural Policy and Arts Management at UCD, which is how I met our Artistic Director, Dr Adrienne Brown.
And that’s what ultimately led me to Wicklow ScreenDance Laboratory…
