Captured during the first lockdown in Ireland in 2020, this short dance film documents a time when young people were trapped at home, and could only dance alone. With movement direction by choreographer Luke Murphy and original score by Michael Fleming, Dancing by Distance features over 35 young dancers across different locations, styles and circumstances throughout Ireland, who each devised a dance solo.
Created for Cruinniú na nÓg on RTÉ with Dance Ireland and Creative Ireland.
