Women’s Dance Project – Dance : Damhsa

After delivering a really groundbreaking dance film project with women in West Belfast last November and December, we are delighted to have received funding from Community Relations Council Cultural Diversity Fund to continue this work.

Every Thursday women living in West Belfast come together to dance, create, share and celebrate.  The women come from a diverse range of backgrounds including local women, and women from places such as Iraq, Syria, West Bank, Gaza, Pakistan and Egypt.

On Thursday 9th March, in celebration of International Women’s Day, DU Dance (NI) and Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich invite women across Belfast to watch the first public sharing of the new women’s film “Ode to Gaia”, followed by an opportunity to dance, chat over a coffee and enjoy delicious homemade Arabic food.  This event is part of Féile an Earraigh.  It will take place 12:30pm – 1:30pm and is free to attend.

If you would like to join us, please get in touch with sheena@dudanceni.com  by Friday 3rd March at 5pm.  As the women come from a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, the event is for strictly for women only.

This project meets at, and is run in partnership with, Cultúrlann McAdam Ó Fiaich.
