The Collaboration

In a most unlikely meeting between the disciplines of choreography and urban regeneration, Dubowitz and Ó Conchúir began collaborating because they discovered there was an area where their respective practices intersect.

Dubowitz is a former architect known worldwide for his investigation of wastelands through photography and his cultural masterplans in regeneration.

Ó Conchúir is a choreographer and dancer recognised internationally for innovative contemporary dance that moves out from the theatre and into the public realm.

They move in very different worlds. What these two artists stumbled across when they met in 2008 and decided to explore through making artworks together is that their different trajectories had nevertheless brought them both to an artistic practice that investigates the reciprocal relationship between the constructions of place and the constructions of the psyche.
