EXTRA PERFORMANCE ADDED
DUE TO DEMAND AN ADDITIONAL MATINEE PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN ADDED ON THURSDAY 20 MAY AT 1PM.
Swimming with my Mother
At two years of age, Irelands youngest swimming hope takes a lesson from his mother Madge, a swimming coach. Will the water be to Davids liking? Life passes and things change. David teaches Madge a dance. Changing rooms and changing roles. Dance and swimming will unite them onstage for the very first time.
DDF is delighted to present this intimate new work in progress from David Bolger, Artistic Director of CoisCéim Dance Theatre. His work has received numerous international awards and has achieved critical acclaim. Madge Bolger has always had a keen interest in dance and last year performed in La Vie en Rose as part of the Bealtaine Festival.
A CoisCéim Dance Theatre production.
A Corpo Libero (Freestyle)
A young woman stands in front of us in a short, multicoloured dress. She finds inadequacies in herself, which she constantly attempts to overcome in order to find the freedom to which she aspires. Gribaudi takes an ironic view of the female condition through both the rigidity and fluidity of her body, arriving at a distant femininity and a joyous recognition of her own physical reality. This work by Silvia Gribaudi won the 2009 Giovane Danza DAutore Veneto competition.
Morphing from hemfiddling wallflower to stageowning siren… a joy from start to finish Keith Watson, Resolution! Review
