Presented as part of ABSOLUT Fringe 2011
A LOST OPERA
Three women in a darkened theatre perform a compellingly illogical dance. As if lightly blown onto stage, with a quick glamorous saunter, one hand on hip, they travel a straight line followed by a curved one, appearing to navigate without a specific destination before arriving near the audience. A moving, profound, sublimely ridiculous performance of their very own lost opera. They are not lost; but where are they going?
This brand new dance from Bessie award winning choreographer Deborah Hay is brought to life by leading dance artists Ella Clarke, Cindy Cummings and Julie Lockett, and directed by the inimitable Jason Byrne (winner of Irish Times Theatre Award Best Production 2009).
“In these dark recessionary days these reflections are the sparks that inspire the artist and illuminate the rest of us.” Irish Theatre Magazine on Genesis Collective’s House of Crossed Destinies
