Project Arts Centre presents

Performance

TROPEA

Dates: 17 Sep - 14 Jan

Tickets: €10

Dancers in the mindless hands of bickering channel surfers. From a back stage screen two elderly “couch potatoes” zap from programme to programme, vainly searching to settle on something to stave off their boredom. From football to commercials, graphic news to trite talk shows, love stories to fictional horror their choices collide in an antagonistic personal duel. At the command of the remote control four dancers take on the life of the programmes, switching this way and that with lightning virtuosity and great technical skill. This is a playful, ironic comment on the real and the virtual.

Helene Weinzierl danced for Rosas, Bruno Genty and Robert Bexler before founding Compagnie Laroque in 1995.

Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…
