KCAT is looking for movers and shakers

Susie Lamb’s first trade is acting and she has acted in film, TV and theatre all over Ireland and abroad for 15 years. In 2008 she completed a three year  training as a dancer and dance facilitator with Dancing the Rainbow and subsequently a one year programme with Myriad dance.  She has been combining dance with theatre ever since,  in her own performance work and in her work as a facilitator. She will cover the Somatic practices element.
Cindy Cummings is a dance artist based in Dublin. Her fascination with and love of movement has its roots in athletics and community dance as a child that led to a more formalized dance and theatre training in the US (Oregon, Washington & NYC). She has been studying, performing and teaching improvisation while creating live performance work with various artistic collaborators around the world ever since. This fertile landscape has been richly developed in her 15 years of work with interactive technology with composer & media artist Todd Winkler (Brown University), Paris based artists Connolly/Cleary and half/angel dance company (Jools Gilson Ellis & Richard Povall). Since 2002, much of her work has been influenced by US choreographer Deborah Hay with whom she has participated in 2 Solo Performance Commissioning Projects (‘Beauty’ 2002; ‘The Ridge’ 2004) and performed in Hay’s trio work ‘A Lost Opera’ (2010).Cindy will cover Contact improvisation and run the “Contact Jam”
