Dance / 16-16 May 2009


Tickets: 22

Fall and Recover is a moving work created in collaboration with survivors of torture, a celebration of the dignity and determination of extraordinary people and the power of the human spirit.
“We are fallen.  We have come up.  When you get the chance to move on, we move on.”  A Survivor of Torture from Fall and Recover
Cast members have lost homes, careers, family and health but their dance celebrates the power of the human spirit and carries imprints from their lives and future hopes.
Rossa Ó Snodaigh’s (Kíla) live music subtly underpins these unspoken shared fragments, tinged with sorrow, joy and anticipation.
“Dignity….hope that permeates”
