the floating village

soft devotion to radical change


Artistic Directors Maria Kerin and Rachel Sweeney

The Floating Village focuses on developing co-creative practice in rural contexts, through body and movement knowledge. Coming from dance, choreography and visual arts perspectives, this combined approach to body land relationships draws from both archaeological and ecological inquiry, exploring with urgency transdisciplinary methods to co-create with communities, both real (established) /imaginary (future). This forms a curatorial practice that is committed to nurturing an ethical space that can hold diversity and yet support creative autonomy, motivated by soft devotion to radical change.
