Heron is a dance and an anthropomorphic journey into the mind of an animal.  A dancer's practice with a dance bar becomes a life's journey culminating in an old bird's last flight.

Heron was part of PAPER PYLONS by Fiona Quilligan dialoguesofart.blogspot.com/ and was made possible with the generous support of the Arts Council of Ireland.

Heron Dive extends the moment of the dive into seeming infinity. The stilled action deconstructs and makes visible the bird's underwater hunt just as the dance movement interprets the bird's intentional narrative.
