Lïnger

Performed by Breandán de Gallaí and Nick O’Connell

Powerful and tender, two dancers at opposite ends of their dancing career share a poignant duet through contemporary Irish dance. Lïnger, performed by ex-Riverdance principal Breandán de Gallaí and Nick O’Connell, is an immersive theatrical experience about sexuality, ageing and identity, told through a rich tapestry of photography, film, music, and movement.

This critically acclaimed work is a ground-breaking theatrical experience which invites you to reflect on the passage of time, and who we are at various stages of our lives.

Throughout this biographical work are moments of liminality – “being neither here nor there” (Heaney 1996): that deliberate restraint; permanently on the cusp; as we indulgently linger in its vastness. Lïnger is a test of endurance as desire soars but climax is avoided.
Ériu’s work is a 21st century reimagining of Irish dance, exploring the poetic potential of the genre and examining topics rarely dealt with through traditional dance.

Show is 60 minutes in duration and there will be a post-show discussion with members of the Company.

The Wolf and Peter

presented by CoisCéim Dance Theatre

Suitable for ages 6+

Prokofiev's Peter And The Wolf is one of the most well known pieces of music ever written.

In this energetic new work, David Bolger has taken this timeless story of courage and imagination as inspiration, and here… the story is told through the eyes of a Wolf! Filled with dance and live music, this fun and richly theatrical production will take children and their families on a thrilling adventure to explore and discover contemporary dance and performance at its best.


★★★★★ “reassuringly traditional and startlingly modern…The Wolf and Peter is funny, imaginative, and, finally, very moving.” – The Irish Times

Giselle

presented by Ballet Ireland

Love. Betrayal. Redemption.

Giselle is a haunting story of love and betrayal. Our modern re-telling of this romantic classic is a timeless tale about the redemptive power of love. Betrayed by Albrecht, Giselle dies of a broken heart but her spirit returns to protect and forgive her now repenting lover from death at the hands of the vengeful Wilis.

Choreographed by Ludovic Ondiviela, former Royal Ballet dancer and choreographer, this production of love that transcends death, will capture the hearts and minds of audiences today.

Ballet Ireland tours throughout Ireland following its hugely successful production of The Nutcracker (2016).
