Michael is currently an associate at Sadler’s Wells London. He founded Teaċ Daṁsa in 2016 as a means to forge stronger connections with the native traditions, language and music of Ireland. The name Teaċ Daṁsa, ‘House of the Dance,’ in Classical Irish, supports this process and was exemplified in the company’s first two productions, Swan Lake / Loch na hEala (2016) and MÁM (2019).

Michael was the artistic director of Fabulous Beast Dance Theatre [masked]), creating three Olivier Award-nominated productions: Giselle (2003), The Bull (2005), and The Rite of Spring (2009).

In 2012 he directed and choreographed a new production of Handel’s Julius Caesar at the London Coliseum, for English National Opera. In 2015 he created an original piece, The Big Noise, for the GoteborgOperans DansKompani. As Guest Artistic Director of the National Youth Dance Company at Sadler’s Wells London for their 2015 - 2016 season, he created In-Nocentes. In March 2017, he choreographed a new work to Dvorak’s 8th Symphony for the Dance Company at the Gärtnerplatztheater, Munich.

Michael has extensive teaching experience. He has led workshops for different companies around the world, including Macnas Theatre Company, Hofesh Schechter Company, Cedar Lake Ballet, Blue Raincoat Theatre Company and the Ballet Junior de Geneva.

Positive Life publisher Paul Congdon says, "It is my great pleasure to chat to Michael. I’ve seen a lot of his work, including pieces by his company Fabulous Beast. When I saw 'Giselle' a few years back, its beauty was heart opening."

Our evening with Michael will take place at 7.30 p.m. GMT on Thursday March 11th. The link and login details will be sent to all ticket holders the day beforehand, and a replay will be sent the following morning.

Bruce Lipton: Epigenetics and the Biology of Belief

Online event

We are pleased to announce that on Wednesday March 24th, we will be co-hosting (with Seminars.ie) a very special event with Bruce Lipton, PhD! This will take place at 8.00 p.m. Irish Time (GMT) – if you do not live in Ireland, do check what time this will be in your local time zone.

This interview style online seminar introduces Bruce and his work on cell research and the findings that we are not solely affected by our genes, and that behaviour and environment can modify our cells and therefore our wellbeing.

Bruce’s research at Stanford University’s School of Medicine, between 1987 and 1992, revealed that the environment, operating though the membrane, controlled the behaviour and physiology of the cell, turning genes on and off. His discoveries, which ran counter to the established scientific view that life is controlled by the genes, presaged one of today’s most important fields of study, the science of epigenetics. Two major scientific publications derived from these studies defined the molecular pathways connecting the mind and body. Many subsequent papers by other researchers have since validated his concepts and ideas.

Bruce H. Lipton, PhD is an internationally recognised leader in bridging science and spirit. Stem cell biologist, bestselling author of The Biology of Belief and recipient of the 2009 Goi Peace Award, he has been a guest speaker on hundreds of TV and radio shows, as well as keynote presenter for national and international conferences.

This event is co- hosted by Seminars.ie and Positive Life.
