There is nothing more compelling than the intimate and powerful relationship between two dancers on stage. Robert Connor & Loretta Yurick, Artistic Directors of Dance Theatre of Ireland, one of Ireland’s most esteemed companies, bring to the stage a scintillating showcase of four duets created especially for the Festival.

Well known for their fast-paced and intricate partnering, they present a new duo, together with three other duets created by renowned international choreographers and performers. These include the smart, sensual & witty work,’Intertwining’, a dance thriller by one of Austria’s leading choreographers, Willi Dorner; a new piece from award-winning, Swiss choreographer Philippe Saire, which examines the irrepressible desire for two to become one; and a new duet premiered by Alex Iseli (Switzerland) and Marie-Françoise Garcia (France), former dancers and outstanding performers with the company.

Special thanks to the Austrian and Swiss Embassies 

“Connor & Yurick’s work continues to innovate, inspire and provoke… a willingness to take risks has turned the company into a prime force in Irish dance.” THE SUNDAY TIMES Post performance discussion: Thursday 13 May

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
