A shared initiative of Live Collision and Dublin Dance Festival

Fast Track participants watch, discuss and debate dance with back-stage access to some of the festival’s leading practitioners and the Dublin Dance Festival team. This is a great opportunity for self-proclaimed dance novices who are keen to develop a critical eye and learn more about dance as an art form.

Previous participants have had a positive experience through this initiative and remain in contact with each other to share information on shows they are interested in and to see work together. Each year’s participants form part of our alumni and they become keen advocates for dance and Dublin Dance Festival. The FAST TRACK experience for participants is really about being part of a group with all the security that comes with travelling en mass to see work; it also offers participants a critical framework and the opportunity to afford themselves the time to indulge in their curiosity about dance and what it has to offer. FAST TRACK is just one of many initiatives by Live Collision to initiate the development of audiences and to further the critical language of audiences in relation to live art forms. 

FAST TRACK >> EXPRESS is led by Lynnette Moran (Founder and Festival Director) and Niamh McCann (Actor, Artist and facilitator) of Live Collision.
