TIDE: Dance Commission Clifden Arts Week 2023

TIDE – Site Specific Performance & Photography


TIDE reflects on what it means to be a mom and an artist and tries to capture the emotional ebbs and flows accompanying these personal circumstances and challenges.

The pictures and the performance can be thought of as a sequel to “A State of Being”, a dance film, that was screened at Clifden Arts Week in 2012. 


The pictures were exhibited at Connemara Sands Hotel and were part of a group exhibition by Connemara Muses.


Concept & Choreography: Linda Schirmer

Dancers: Margarete Werner & Linda Schirmer
