GHALIAH CONROY – SUNKEN WORKS

 

In Sunken Works, Ghaliah Conroy points to the Western view of black female bodies. Among other things, she takes us to the human zoos that took place in the Netherlands and Belgium until the 1970s. Switching between soft, fluid and more raw and intense movements, Ghaliah uses the dance form Krump as a means of accessing a certain anger she feels as a result of experiences of discrimination and stereotyping.

Ghaliah Conroy is an emerging dance maker/performer born in Dublin. She comes from a family of artists and has a background in dance, music and theatre that influences her work and creative process. Half Irish and half French Guinean, growing up in two drastically different cultures has given her a unique perspective that has truly shaped her into who she is as a maker.
