Dance Artist in Residence: 2023

As inaugural artist at the Baths Artist Studios in Dún Laoghaire in 2023, Laura focused on exploring our interconnection with the Sea:


Diving into the context and stories of this historic landmark in exchange with local bathing and swimming community.

Exploring our inter-relationship, impact and care of

water, the Sea and coastal landscapes. 

Investigating our physiological water make-up, sea rites and rituals,

& our innate desire to dip, swim and get-in the water! 


With a program of land and water-based movement workshops, sea scores, talks, dance & dip events, pop-up performances & more! 

Follow what's happening here!



Join the dance this Summer with sea and studio-based workshops, open studio conversation and pop-up events at the BATHS in Dún Laoghaire!

This is an opportunity to share your stories, explore your own water-dance, connect with community and find joy in movement!
