~~Roads Entertainment presents a new documentary from award-winning filmmaker Claire Dix. We Are Moving – Memories of Miss Moriarty (Ireland, 2016) is an intimate portrait of Joan Denise Moriarty, a visionary who overcame enormous odds by doggedly following her dream of bringing ballet to every corner of Ireland. A pioneer of early 20th century Irish dance, Joan Denise Moriarty dared to create a uniquely Irish form of ballet inspired by her love of nature and Irish folklore.
A divisive figure, both her professional and personal life has been subject to much scrutiny over the years, and remain contentious issues for those who knew her. Despite these controversies, Joan Denise Moriarty has left behind a remarkable legacy of dancers and dance lovers who may never have found ballet without her influence.
