Cathy Coughlan is an independent dance artist based in Dublin. She is currently Dance Artist in Residence at RUA RED Arts Centre, supported by The Arts Council and South Dublin County Council. Most recently, she completed a period of research, supported by Create, which focussed on new modes of collaborative practice through screen based technology. In 2014 Cathy choreographed and directed ‘Source’, a production for Tiger Dublin Fringe Festival, which gained two award nominations.
In 2005 Cathy received a B.A. from The National College of Art and Design (Fine Art) where her practice, deeply rooted in dance, primarily developed through video installation and performance. Since then she has performed and choreographed for both stage and screen, increasingly presenting both film and live performance simultaneously.
As a dance | visual artist working in a collaborative context she has delivered projects and performances in association with South Dublin Co.Co, RUA RED Arts Centre, RADE, CoisCeim Broadreach, Common Ground, Create, Focus Ireland, the Fatima Regeneration Project, The Dunamaise Arts Centre, Dublin City Council, Dance Ireland, Laois Co.Co and Laois Partnership.
