Mamuska, a unique event that offers artists a chance to present new and evolving works, short masterpieces and conceptual research, is coming to Kerry under the auspices of Kerry Dancer in Residence Catherine Young, who hopes to establish it as a regular feature of the county’s flourishing arts calendar.

The inaugural Mamuska Kerry will occur on Friday 27 June at St John’s Art Centre, Listowel, alongside and supported by the Dance Research Forum Ireland (DRFI) 2nd International Conference at the Institute of Technology Tralee in June 2008.

Featuring artists such as Michael Keegan-Dolan and Máire Clerkin, the conference offers a four-day line up of presentations, lecture demonstrations, workshops and discussions around dance. Catherine Young and DRFI envision this Mamuska Kerry as allowing international and local conference attendees to experience aspects of dance in contemporary Ireland in an informal and relaxed setting.

Submission criteria:
Open to works in the fields of dance, live performance, live installation, sound and video art
All works must be under 10 minutes long
All works must have very simple tech set up and requirements
