Screening. Véronique Doisneau was a member of the corps de ballet of the Paris Opera Ballet, a career ballet dancer, but never the étoile. This work by Jérôme Bel was made as Doisneau was approaching 42, POB’s
mandatory retirement age. On a bare stage, Doisneau sketches out her life as a dancer. Both humorous and poignant, Bel’s film reveals the person behind the facade of the mutely graceful corps. A panel discussion on the topic ‘Career Transitions in Dance’ will follow the screening. Panellists include Joanna Banks, College of Dance; Finola Cronin, UCD; Paul Johnson, Dance Ireland, Jenny Roche,
Dance Advisor Arts Council and Davide Terlingo, Head of Dance Arts Council.
This event is FREE but ticketed. Tickets can be booked in advance or collected from the Light House Box Office (01 879 7601).
Sunday 31 January 4.00pm
