Archipelagic Thinking will examine shared cultural identity across The North Atlantic Arc.

 

Ag gluaiseacht le capaill agus míolta móra. Aesthetic practices of care; Migratory dances in the living old style.

 

How does a body dance socio-economic issues, confront the devastation of marginalised communities and languages or dance with questions of indigenity?

 

In Archipelagic Thinking Donovan examines his interest in migratory patterns on Oileán Chléire, a Gaeltacht island off Co. Cork, Ireland; of both humans and animals, as well as flows of value and resource distribution; cod, whales, oil and water.

 

Ruairí Donovan works in and through both Gaeilge and English examining the affect of both languages on the moving body. Archipelagic Thinking will examine shared cultural identity across The North Atlantic Arc where Donovan has been conducting field research.
