Fearghus Ó Conchúir

Artistic Director

Born and raised in Ireland, I have presented my choreography in the UK, across Europe, the USA and China, collaborating with award-winning performers, directors, composers and designers. I most recently worked as Artistic Director of The Casement Project, one of Arts Council of Ireland’s largest projects for the centenary commemorations of the 1916 Easter Rising. It engaged 90,000 people in a varied programme of dance events and was also one of the 14-18 NOW co-commissions for the centenary of the First World War. I have also worked as a dance teacher for companies such as Adventures in Motion Pictures, Arc Dance, Company and Ballet Preljocaj, as well as being a lecturer on professional training courses at LCDS, Middlesex University and London Studio Centre. I have gained a wealth of artistic experience and an international network of creative collaborators and partners in and beyond dance. I hold a strong focus on diversity and have developed dance projects within the LGBT and refugee communities, with dance enthusiasts over 50, and with Irish integrated dance company, Croí Glan.

In addition to being a Fellow of the Clore Leadership Programme, I have gained a wealth of experience as a facilitator, coach, and contributor to the Clore Leadership Programme, having been part of the delivery of its Fellowship, Intensive and Emerging Leaders’ Courses for over ten years. I've also previously worked with Clore to deliver the Advanced Cultural Leadership Programme in Hong Kong.
