Last week saw Pavilion Dance South West host ‘Drawing Dance’ – an event for visual artists to draw moving dancers in our iconic new Drawing Studio.

This drawing session used the basic format of a life drawing session as the point of departure for the study of the movement of two dancers who performed for the artists.

The session was facilitated by Fergus Byrne. Fergus is a member of the Visual Arts Centre and is based in Dublin, Ireland. His practice is multidisciplinary and has been funded by The Arts Council of Ireland. He holds a BA in Fine Art from NCAD and an MA in Theatre and Contemporary Practice from Hull University and has been a professional artist since 1996. Interests are in drawing, writing, dance improvisation and sculpture.
