Supported by the Arts Council, Cork City Council and Firkin Crane, dancer and choreographer Laura Murphy has been named Cork’s Dancer in Residence at Firkin Crane for 2013/2014. The aim of the award is to expand the professional practice of dance in Cork and this is the second year in a row that Laura has received this prestigious award.

As part of this year's residency, Laura initiated the community-based project A Dance Concerto with composer Irene Buckley and dancers Helga Deasy and Siobhan Ní Dhuinnín. As the year goes by, people who become involved will be supported to collaborate with professional dance artists and composers to develop a live performance for June 2014.
