The site specific choreography is Nothing Accidental in This Big Dance by Mary Nunan, taking place in John’s Square.
It was inspired by the atmosphere of St. John’s Square: the square itself, the buildings, the church and the graveyard.
Nothing Accidental In This Big Dance sets out to enliven the square and to also be enlivened by it: to dance with it. Performed by six highly skilled and sensitive dancers, the piece comprises a number of sections that unfold in different parts of the square.
Dance Limerick advise to dress for the early Spring weather.
