The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon, 2nd December 2023
Our third Moving Together event was a day of dance, discussions, and cross arts play in a relaxed, inclusive environment; an opportunity to unwind, explore, and share, and to make new connections in an informal atmosphere.
So much joy, connection and laughter! Thank you to everyone who came along to our event at
The Dock. Such a wonderful group of returning and new participants. My heart is full! Till the next time!

A live outdoor performance by Natalia Beylis & Robin Roche
A contemplative duet, Aiteall incorporates breath-taking acrobatics and aerial dance in a performance that explores rich musical and movement pathways offered by small openings. Based on the Irish term, Aiteall, this work has developed from explorations of the sensorily rich moments we experience in the openings between rain showers.
Market Yard, Carrick-on-Shannon
4.15pm-4.45pm & from 5.15pm-5.45pm
Natalia Beylis' music revolves somewhere between sonic story-teller and multi-instrumental explorer. She has released over 40 albums between solo works and collaborations and has appeared on numerous compilations. While she regularly records on a variety of traditional instruments (mainly pianos, organs, keyboards and mandola), she is just as likely to use non-musical sound sources within her compositions. For example, she recently released an album using just the sounds created by a domestic sewing machine.
In her live performances, Natalia layers seemingly incongruous sounds atop of each other to spawn strange juxtapositions and garbled parallels by exploring the sonic potentials of domestic appliances, found objects, cassette tapes and field recordings.
Natalia's latest two releases 'She Came Through the Window to Stand By The Door' and 'Library of Sticks' are available from Nyahh Records and Artsy Records.
Growing up in the beautiful surroundings of Sligo in Ireland, much of my performance practice is influenced by landscape and ecology. As a teenager I travelled widely in Ireland and Europe for intensive training courses in aerial and dance. At 17 I settled in Bristol UK to train full time in contemporary circus at Circomedia. Having completed these studies, I now live and work between Ireland and UK collaborating with dancers, musicians, and circus artists. My work in aerial specialises in hoop and straps, and my focus in dance includes release techniques and contact improvisation/acrobatics. I have over six years of experience performing, creating and working in the fields of dance, circus, street theatre and performance art.
A tender, powerful and uplifting expression of how, through connection and support, we reach beyond boundaries to expand the world we inhabit.
Landing Places is an exciting new performance that was previewed at The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon earlier this year. It was developed with an exceptional ensemble of dance artists; Gaelin Little (UK), Loveth Oyiboka (IRE & Nigeria), Mintesinot Wolde (IRE & Ethiopia), and dance aerialist and acrobat Robin Wilson (IRE). Other collaborators include sound artist Olivir Haylett (UK).

With a striking theatrical set, reminiscent of Lars von Trier’s ‘Dogville’, the performers explore a delineated world of imposed structures, where uncertainty is set against promise and dark against the light of a safe haven. The narrative unfolds through an exciting fusion of cultural dances from Ethiopia & Nigeria with dance theatre, where the ensemble ultimately express, without guard, the profound necessity to move without limits, & beyond walls.
After two highly popular events in December 2022 and July 2023 we are delighted to announce the next date of Moving Together on the 2nd of December. This is an opportunity to unwind, explore and share, and to make new connections in an informal and playful atmosphere. The event combines participatory workshops with group discussions, with opportunities for reflective writing, drawing and making throughout the day. All are welcome! No previous experience required - just an inquisitive mind and a playful attitude!
