Ultimate Dancer aka Louise Ahl
The new solo performance YAYAYA AYAYAY is a choreographic and multi-sensory journey into the complex nature of both emotional and physical darkness.
In 2015, Louise went into a darkness retreat for five days – a purpose-built room isolated from all light and sound. Ceremonial darkness as a shamanic tool is a classical method for accessing vibrant unconscious and super-conscious states. The experience was deeply transformative; at times hallucinogenic, emotionally moving, physically painful and has thoroughly inspired the creation of YAYAYA AYAYAY.
Choreography is generally understood to rely on the rules of time and space. YAYAYA AYAYAY will challenge and exhibit how our perceptions of time, space and choreography shift when in contact with sensory overload and deprivation.
For Live Collision, Ultimate Dancer is presenting an active experiment with a local sound artist of this piece in development.

Live Concept Album (Recovery)
Written by Zoe Ni Riordain in collaboration with Maud Ni Riordain
Live Concept Album (Recovery) is a show about family and letting go told through song.
Using the frame of an album to tell a story, the performers are attempting to connect with you.
From the banal to the poetic, the audience are invited into the world of this family, who are dealing with the past in the present tense.
The album will not be recorded. You have to be here.
Stop cooking that will you?
It’s going to burn.
You’re going to burn it
“Insane, electrifying, intense”
“a painstaking work given startling execution”

Recovery was previously presented at Project Arts Centre in April 2016 and as a work-in-progress in January 2015.
