CROÍ Glan, an integrated dance company, presents an evening of new contrasting duets that celebrate diverse dancing bodies. Dance Limerick welcomes back Croí Glan and John Scott of the Irish Modern Dance Theatre for “a thought-provoking evening of dance”
See www.dancelimerick.ie for Thursday November 7.
‘Visible and Invisible’ is choreographed by John Scott. For the piece, co-artistic director Linda Fearon and guest performer Rebecca Reilly are accompanied by a music commission from composer Tom Lane, based on Latin plainchant.
Dance Limerick tells us that “rooted in the complementary physicalities and rapport of the dancers, their impetus to move and then rest and then move again as they assist and support each other, ‘Visible and Invisible’ is a physical and aural narrative of travel, migration and change.”
The second work in the programme is ‘Too’, choreographed by Croí Glan co-artistic director Tara Brandel for herself and Linda Fearon. It follows through a series of explorations: how are we treated as female dancers? What are our experiences? How is difference navigated? What does it mean to be seen? And who are we dancing for?
‘Too’ draws on the personal experiences of the performers and the reflections of a wider group of female dancers who were interviewed by Brandel. “This brave new duet delves into the deep and complex territory of gender experience in the wake of the #MeToo movement.”
Taking place at Dance Limerick, John’s Square, the works are supported by a Dance Project grant from Arts Council and supportive partners Dance Ireland and Firkin Crane. 8pm show.
