AN INFORMAL OPPORTUNITY TO VIEW, ENGAGE AND DISCOVER MORE ABOUT THE NEXT GENERATION OF DANCE CREATORS!
HOSTED BY COISCÉIM BROADREACH
SUNDAY 23 APRIL
CREATIVE STEPS Youth Dance Group: COUNTER | CULTURE
A dialogue between young dancers, this hypnotic piece explores the individual voice versus the power of the collective. As dancers collide, individual actions begin to unravel, making way for new connections to form and collective choreography to build.
Commissioned by CoisCéim BROADREACH, COUNTER | CULTURE is a new piece by choreographers Sibéal Davitt and Olwyn Lyons.
Company B: DILEMMA
DILEMMA is about the problem we all face when trying to go steadily about our daily lives and awkward decisions force themselves upon us, demanding choices that we don’t really want to make.
Company B, Ireland’s first contemporary dance group for young males recently celebrated its tenth birthday. Having spent a decade creating dances on a variety of themes and performing them all over Ireland, this piece will sadly be the company’s swansong. This phase of Company B has come to an end and it’s time to imagine what the next ten years might hold for ‘boys who dance’.
