Jean Butler to Address Ladies Lunch

We are delighted to announce that Jean Butler, a leading figure in the world of Irish dance performance, will be the guest speaker at the 2018 Limerick Civic Trust’s Ladies Lunch.

This annual fundraising event which supports the work of the Trust takes place on Friday 5th October at No.1 Pery Square Hotel, Limerick from 12.30pm

Jean Butler is Executive and Artistic Director of Our Steps Foundation. She originated the female principle roles and co-choreographed Riverdance and Dancing on Dangerous Ground, the latter, which Anna Kisselgoff of the New York Times reviewed as “channeling Irish step dancing into genuine artistic expression.”

Since 2005, she has been working in a contemporary context as a choreographer and performer and holds the position of UCD Fellow in Creative Practice, Director of the UCD Irish Dance Scholars, Assistant Professor of Irish Studies at Glucksman Ireland House, New York University, and recently taught at the prestigious Princeton Atelier.

Butler’s work as a choreographer, performer and academic bridges the gap between a culturally specific practice and a contemporary approach to dance making and thought. She is committed to idiosyncratic exploration within traditional form and is dedicated to expanding the canon and perception of Irish dance performance.
