Dusk is the hour between dog and wolf, between domestic and wild.

Dusk Ahead is a captivating dance theatre work by Project Artists junk ensemble which explores human attachment, blindness and invisibility.

The work reveals the murky, fading light of dusk when it is difficult to discern what is real and what is imagined.

Throughout the show, the talented cast act as the band, playing live music from an original score.

Dusk Ahead returns to Project following its premiere here during the 2013 Dublin Theatre Festival. These dates mark the start of a new national tour of six venues.
