Interview with Liz Roche. By Elisabetta Bisaro

Could you talk a little bit about the work you have developed as part of modul-dance?
My modul-dance piece, Body and Forgetting,  premiered on January 29th 2013 at The Abbey Theatre on The Peacock stage in Dublin.

Through modul-dance specifically I had a residency with my dancers and musician at DeVIR/CAPa Faro in Portugal and also at DanceIreland Dublin.
