Administrative History: Fitzgerald & Stapleton is a contemporary dance company founded and directed by Emma Fitzgerald and Áine Stapleton.  The company’s choreo­graphic work focuses on the interaction between the body and contemporary society, and the objectification of the body to create revenue for the beauty, diet, and pornography industries, aiming to offer an alternative value system for looking at and relating to the body.  In addition to Irish venues, Fitzgerald & Stapleton have toured widely and performed their work at Chocolate Factory Theater and Judson Church, New York; the Pompidou Centre, Paris; and the Performing Arts Forum, Reims.  Áine Stapleton has been named as one of the Top 30 Artists under the ages of 30 for her contribution to Ireland’s cultural life.
