Co-commissioned by Dublin Dance Festival and The National Folk Theatre of Ireland, Anam, (meaning soul), brings together the skills of four world-class step dancers from the US, Canada and Ireland in an exhilarating fusion of styles.
Authentic and raw, this percussive dance piece explores the similarities and differences between the dancers, each with their own distinct hard shoe style. Anam celebrates the dance’s essential spirit, yet injects it with fresh energy to create something new. Featuring dancers Matthew Olwell, Jonathan Kelliher, Nathan Pilatzke and John Fitzgerald. This uplifting production is performed to live music and song composed by acclaimed Irish musician Fergal Ó Murchú, along with musicians Mikey Smith and Joseph McNulty.
This tour is funded by the Arts Council.
