The Arts Council of Ireland has recently announced the creation of a new all-island dance company, marking a transformative and significant moment for dance in Ireland. After a competitive selection process, a team led by Liz Roche Company, with foundational strategic partners Maiden Voyage Dance and the Irish World Academy of Music and Dance, University of Limerick, was appointed to form the company. This team comes with a wealth of knowledge and expertise in dance, both nationally and internationally.

We are now in the process of creating a flagship dance company recognised at home and abroad, that will offer distinctive high-quality experiences for dance artists and audiences. This new company will provide an island-wide platform for dance, collaboration and development, seeking to strengthen the existing dance ecosystem, develop the artform and develop pathways for artists to create work of scale and ambition.

The company’s remit is island-wide but will be based in Dublin for this phase of its development.

We are seeking:

An experienced, motivated and creative individual, with excellent strategic communications and management experience, who is inspired to:

  • Engage the public with the work of the company
  • Enrich the experience of those who interact with the company
  • Build a team to carry out the Communication, Outreach and Development functions of the company

This is an opportunity to work as part of a dynamic and ambitious team at a pivotal moment for the dance sector in Ireland.
