Classically trained in Dublin, Monte Carlo and Madrid, Liadain Herriott has worked across Europe for companies including Cannes Jeune Ballet, Opera Royal de Wallonie, Opera Ireland and CoisCeim Dance Theatre, not to mention others. Based in Brussels for four years, she made her transition from classical to contemporary work via various independent projects. Greatly influenced by her involvement in David Hernandez's Performance Hotel, she works towards incorporating dance into collaborative installations with other performance artists, electronic musicians and light artists. A recipient of Irish Arts Council, Culture Ireland and Dance Ireland awards she has made and performed work in India (Bangalore Dance Collective), New York (DTW), Brussels (Brxlbravo) and her home town, Dublin. In her latest solo work "La Poupette" and "man-i-cure", she incorporates costume and text into the suggestive narrative of the choreography. Intrigued by the relationship between sound and movement, her most recent research, S 'n B Project, based on this relationship, was selected for residency at Dans Centrum Jette in Belgium. She is also presently developing a duet entitled Duplicate Copy and a solo called The White Wall. She enjoys collaborating with artists from different backgrounds - circus, installation, video, plasticiens. Her aim is to explore and expand the possibilities of dance performance, extending the range of audience members to a wider public.
