About the artist

Ailish Claffey is a dance artist, choreographer and curator based in Kildare.

Through work with diverse groups within the community for the last two decades, Ailish has developed her practice primarily focusing on Dance for Health. As Dance Artist in Residence based in the Age-Related Health-Care Unit, Tallaght University Hospital (2015-2019), Ailish’s collaborative practice and choreographic work examined the lived experience of those she worked with. Her dance film ‘The Dance Back Home’ received a Certificate of Excellence at the HSE Awards 2018.

Specialising in Choreological Studies (Trinity Laban, UK), co-creation and exploring the complexity of human relationship lies at the heart of Ailish’s choreographic work. Ailish is currently exploring the use of open scores in a desire to move away from creating written work.
