Stephanie Dufresne

Independent Artist

Stephanie Dufresne (she/her) is a dancer, actor and choreographer from the West of Ireland based in Dublin.

Stephanie has been making work with Laura Sheeran for the last seven years, and their first full-length production is currently to be seen at the Galway Arts Festival 2021. After Love is based on the poetry of Dani Gill and uses dance, music, poetry and film to explore the grief, loss and resilience that can result from the end of a long-term relationship. Stephanie is interested in continuing to create works that use dance in unusual ways to explore larger themes and narrative.
