The Nerve Ep 54: Deirdre Grant

Jenny O'Connor (Photographer)

Research output: Non-textual formDigital or Visual Products


In this first episode of the new semester, Jenny welcomes Deirdre Grant, a dance practitioner and choreographer who also works as a lecturer at SETU Waterford, teaching on courses as diverse as Theatre Studies, Early Childhood Studies, and Social Care. She is also the current Dance Artist in Residence at Garter Lane Arts Centre, Waterford. During Covid, when her work with community groups and regional artists could no longer take place, the idea for a book about how to reconnect with the body post-pandemic started to grow. The resulting publication, Prompts for the Mover, was developed in conjunction with her brother, a fine art photographer, and is due to be launched in March. Dee talks about how she ended up following her passion, the benefits of dance for people with a variety of abilities and needs, and her hopes for her new publication.
