On the 28th of February 2011 Daghdha Dance Company (Limerick, Ireland) has been informed of a 100\% funding cut by the Arts Council of Ireland.

We believe this cut to be unjust and call for this decision to be revoked.

"In the heart of Limericks city centre we have created one of the world`s most inspiring and beautiful spaces for contemporary dance: Daghdha Space, St. Johns Church. We have been building a contemporary repertoire of the highest artistic standing and 1000s of photographs document well over 200 unique events that have taken place here over the years. We have provided the birthing place for new and internationally acclaimed cultural formats such as Mamuska Nights and Framemakers. A truly diverse audience, of all abilities and backgrounds gathered and danced regularly around the activities offered by Daghdha. Audiences across Ireland as well as in the US, Australia, China and Europe have enjoyed Daghdhas performances over the years. During this period the stimulating environment at Daghdha has attracted over 70 dance-artists to stay and make their living in Limerick. Many went on to contribute to the wider cultural life of Ireland, whilst at the same time, numerous distinguished artists, choreographers and thinkers have spent time working with us. Two books have been published out of rigorously re-thinking choreography and the current cultural situation. Our programme for independent dance-artists (DMP) has given a new generation time and space to deepen their own practice, and in the beginning of 2011 we launched the very first MA in Choreographic Arts in Partnership with Limerick School of Art and Design."
