Mintesinot Wolde


About the artist

Mintesinot Wolde is a professional contemporary dance artist who graduated with an MA from the University of Limerick. He's the artistic director of Mintesinot Wolde Dance, an active member of Dance Ireland, Artist Panellist for Roscommon County Council, and a board member of Galway Dance Project.

Mintesinot dance practice is based on improvisation/ contemporary dance techniques that explore the space, and dance movement, finding dance compositions that tell stories or abstract dance choreographies that do not have specific stories.

Mintesinot has performed for renowned choreographers through the years such as Akiko Kitamura, John Scott, and Choidi Dance Company to mention a few. He has been featured in a short music film "Eire Ildanach''/ ‘an Irish Goodbye” by Daithi, TG4 “Samhlu” 2020 and Rhiannon Giddens music video “Avalon” in 2021. Recently, he has developed his own dance pieces with a screen dance “See you in the Green” which was support by Roscommon Arts Centre, Roscommon County Council and Creative Ireland. This dance piece was also presented at Dancer of the Dance Festival, hosted by John Scott in 2021.

He received an Arts Council Agility Award 2021 and Artists Bursary from the Roscommon Arts Office to create a short film as work in progress called Forth Strides. He has been previously awarded dance residencies at Roscommon Art Centre, Dance Ireland, and Shawbrook in 2020. Recently, in collaboration with various artists he choreographed dance pieces for “At the Abbey” and “At the Castle” as part of the 2021 Roscommon County council LLPPS activities.
