LED BY LIV O’DONOGHUE
Creative Sessions: 21 JANUARY – 16 FEBRUARY 2019
Performance: 17 FEBRUARY 2019
In this era of chaos and confrontation, what is really happening in the world in which we live? Over 4 weeks in 2019, radical choreographer Liv O’Donoghue worked with a group of 18 adults – to respond to current social and political events – and to collaborate, devise and perform new dance theatre. The project was thought-provoking and discursive, physically challenging and highly inventive.
Here’s what Liv O’Donoghue said at the beginning of the project: ‘In trying to situate the work in a context that has relevance to the real world around us, where we are questioning truth, trust and authority, we will come together to create work of power and humanity which contrasts with the chaos around us.’
THE CHOREOGRAPHY PROJECT is a regular feature of the BROADREACH audience engagement programme. It offers people the opportunity to work with professional choreographers in the exploration of contemporary dance theatre. Find out more here…
