ARTICULATED THRESHOLDS is the umbrella term for an ongoing dance ecology program together with Irish artist Maria Kerin. The work emerged out of the Swedish Irish experimental heritage community Karum Creevagh and maps timelines of Irish cultural heritage practices, particularly around water rituals in sacred sites that inform both metaphoric and real time understanding of body-place relations.


Consciously striving to dance at the thresholds and slippages of artistic and environmental disciplines, we ask how adaptation might act as a strategy to inform our conscious encounter with radical change.
