Dance on the Box

In RTÉ Dance On The Box 2010, the Arts Council and RTÉ bring television audiences four new short dance films, set in a church, under water, in a cinema and in a mother's memory.

A haunting response to the impact of abuse on faith, the deep attachment of mothers and children, and a ferocious vision of an entrapped dancer, these outstanding films speak more powerfully than words.
