Painting the canvas - research and development intergenerational project in collaboration with echo echo dance theatre company
Thanks to a Dance Bursary Award from the Arts Council of Ireland and with support by Clare County Council and Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company, Maria is currently researching a new piece with working title Painting the Canvas.
Due to Covid and current restrictions and the recent arrival of her first baby, Maria is taking on the role as director. Echo Echo ensemble members Tonya Sheina and Ayesha Mailey together with their daughters Naya, Mira and Dara are working in the Echo Echo studios while Maria joins in via Zoom. An open rehearsal was hosted for a small audience on Friday 30th of July 2021.
The group will continue working again in Oct 2021 in Culturlann Sweeney County Clare, restriction permitted.
