We Are Moving – Memories of Miss Moriarty

1h 5m Documentary, F-rated, Irish Film 2016

This is an intimate portrait of Joan Denise Moriarty, a visionary who overcame enormous odds to follow her dream of bringing ballet to every corner of Ireland. A pioneer of early 20th century Irish dance, Moriarty dared to create a uniquely Irish form of ballet inspired by her love of nature and Irish folklore. A divisive figure, she was accused of fabricating her professional dance training and of misrepresenting herself as a vanguard of Irish ballet. Despite such controversies, Moriarty has left behind a remarkable legacy of dancers and dance lovers who may never have found ballet without her influence.
