Irish project SlowMo selected for Perform Europe International Touring Initiative

Perform Europe which is supported by Creative Europe to create more sustainable cross-border distribution of the performing arts has announced 19 finalists in their international touring initiative. The projects will test innovative, more inclusive and sustainable performing arts touring and distribution models. 

The selected works include an Irish project entitled 'SlowMo: Connecting Cloughjordan Ecovillage to continental Europe via land, sea and dance.' The core artistic work of this project, SlowMo, is an outdoor participatory dance work by Instant Dissidence, Ireland. The work will travel from Cloughjordan Ecovillage, Ireland by land and sea to destinations in Cyprus, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, and the UK.

For the partners behind this project, slow travel is not merely a way of traversing geography and saving on carbon emissions: they have turned it into a framework for creating their work.

The partners in this project are:

  • Instant Dissidence (Ireland)
  • Ipogia Skini (Cyprus)
  • Fondazione Romaeuropa (Italy)
  • Helsingør Teater (Denmark)
  • In Between Time (UK)
  • Vastsvenska Turnerande Sommar Teatern (VTST) (Sweden)

You can find out more about the projects in the Peform Europe catalogue.
