My Body of Coming Forth by Day

Tickets: €22 full price / €18 conc.
Show Time: 7.30pm

Step into the radical world of iconic French choreographer, Olivier Dubois, hailed as one of the twenty-five best dancers in the world by Dance Europe magazine. Having earned resounding acclaim both as a choreographer and as a performer, his latest work is an intimate solo that marks the culmination of his extraordinary career to date.

Alone on stage, Dubois extends a rare and personal invitation to the audience to become co-creators of an unconventional and wildly entertaining performance. Cued by the spectators, Dubois revisits some of the sixty shows from his rich repertoire as a dancer and choreographer. Each vignette, uniquely and spontaneously reinvented, takes on new life to unveil different facets of the performer.

Ditching the conventions of traditional performance, My Body of Coming Forth by Day takes us on an exuberant and avant-garde odyssey that explores the recesses of the body’s memory to unravel what makes a masterpiece.

This event is part of the Dublin Dance Festival. See the full programme here.
