Irish Modern Dance Theatre Presents


Divine Madness

Dates: 13 Nov - 16 Nov

Show Time: 7.30pm

Tickets: €16-18

Preview: 13 Nov, €14

A dance/opera study of grief, revenge and love built around a soprano and two dancers.

John Scott creates a work with soprano Mairead Buicke, pianist Richard McGrath and dancers, Conor Thomas Doherty, Hannah Rogerson and Magdalena Hylak

Divine Madness explores the physicality of the soprano in the context of a dance, the singer exploring her practice beyond the concert recital. The sound score includes elements of Dvorak’s ‘Song of the Moon’, Richard Strauss’ ‘Morgen’, Puccini’s Tosca and Gianni Schicchi masterpiece ‘Elektra’ using fragmented operatic extracts from arias in a context of exile, loss and revenge.

The Soprano voice seems to come from Heaven and soar like an angel. It embodies beauty and perfection and is also divine, ghostly and superhuman.

Please note: Hannah Rogerson is dancing on Friday the 15th and Lucia Kickham is dancing on Sat 16th.
