FIDP- Focus Ireland

Digital Platform

Live broadcast

TDP’20 international dance festival

2-11 October 2020

A live broadcast event presenting Irish-based dance artists


Focus Ireland Digital Platform

This Focus Ireland Digital Platform (FIDP) is a new initiative by Tipperary Dance Platform. It aims to create an interface where the Irish creative dance sector can meet with inter/national festivals and curators, to start a new dialogue for the industry.

As you can imagine, this first edition, involving international travel, could not go as planned. So TDP’20 presents a Live digital broadcast, a pilot version adapted to the current situation. Some of the events presented here will also be performed live Onland, conditions permitting. Being pure aficionados, we naturally encourage you to attend these.

FIDP’ Live broadcast is a Zoom event showing pre-recorded works and hosting a live interaction with artists and audiences. This means that it will be broadcasted online via the Zoom.us online service. And accessible through registration only.

The FIDP Live broadcast will present: 

•  A brief introduction by the festival directors

• 4 pre-recorded dance pieces filmed during live performances at TDP’20 Onland events (the 3 and 10 October)

• 5 screendance shorts commissioned by TDP' to Mary Wycherley

• A moderated live discussion with the artists, engaging live with audience members
