'little Time little Space' at Mamuska night!

What a night, what a crowd, what a performance!

As a prelude to the performance and to add to the high drama of getting to the space the heavens above roared with thunder and the streets were engulfed with rivers of rain and hailstone. Not to be detered we made it to La Cathedral and got down to buisness

A big thank you to Ailish and Kathleen for their open, smiling, connected performance they gave of 'little Time, little Space', to Brigit at the Back loft who organised the night and the audience for their connection and willingness to come along for the ride!

So many memories and a great sense of being home was felt in the Back loft. This was the space were expandance was born in ICNWP 2006. Almost 5 years on in different continents, 3 new children, a marriage and so much more in between... I am looking forward to what comes of the next 5!

Pics and video links to the night coming soon :)

Performance Friday 10th June, Dublin

Mixing it up expandance stylie we are delighted to perform ‘little Time, little Space’ at MAMUSKA DUBLIN on Friday 10th June. This will be the second time ‘little Time little Space’ will be performed since its development by Alicia with new expandance members Ailish Claffey and Kathleen Doherty.

Mamushka Night features a packed line-up of exploratory performance and film to challenge and inspire. Audience and artists get to mingle in an atmosphere of play and discovery. Admission is free (Donation optional.)  For more information and full list of who is performing check out

NOTE I have also mentioned to Alicia that our next piece should be called ‘ Loads of Time, Loads of Space, Fully Funded and Child care covered!’ …. and then hopefully it will be as a self fulfilling a prophecy as ‘little Time little Space’ has turned out to be! Hope to see you this Friday
