A double bill of dance work by John Scott and Merce Cunningham
Throughout human history precious metals like gold, silver and platinum have inspired, bewitched, hypnotised and for centuries alchemists have striven to transform base metals into gold. However is this what we really need, really want? What is it we really aspire to and what is truly important to us?
Featuring an international team of technically brilliant, culturally diverse dancers and artists, John Scott combines passion and virtuosity, humour and heartbreak. Using choral texts from Sophocles’ Antigone, expect wild jumps into space, wonderful rhythms and movements driven by speed and strength, all delivered with poignancy and eloquence.
Choreography by John Scott
Design by Eric Wurtz
Choreographed by Merce Cunningham, Night Wandering is a duet reminiscent of snowy landscapes, described by Walter Sorrel as “a tender lullaby of love”.
In keeping with the piece’s Nordic theme, the music by Bo Nilsson is characterised by bursts of activity followed by moments of silence, evoking the feeling of travelling through the spacious, and seemingly endless Northern night.
Presented by John Scott Dance by arrangement with Merce Cunningham Trust

Exactly 20 years ago the new purpose-built premises of Project Arts Centre reopened amidst huge expectations and speculations on its capacities to live up to its artist-led ethos and continue its creative path dedicated to experimentation and radical practices. There were sceptics and critical voices addressing both the context of the development of the Temple Bar Cultural Quarter and spectacle-oriented, consumer-driven cultural production which some feared Project’s subversive spirit might fall prey to after its refurbishment. An anniversary at most times is an important opportunity to reflect, especially during such transformative moments as those we are living through right now.…Read More

Hi there, How are you doing today? We hope you and your family are staying safe and sane during these strange days. We've been thinking about how we stay connected. It's not easy. Some of us have to stay indoors all the time. Others mostly all of the time. We've had letters and postcards through our letterboxes that made us smile. We've got emotional sending messages of support and solidarity to others. Some of us have wifi, Social Media and laptops. Some of us don't. So, we're starting LOCKDOWN LETTERS. To try to stay connected to as many of our…Read More
