“…a carefully constructed and impeccably performed investigation into partnerships where the dancers seek equilibrium within shifting personal dynamics.“ The Irish Times “… it rises through a graceful arc and explodes. These dancers were never going to fall, or let the audience down. 'Wunderbar' soars in the memory long after the audience has crashed back to earth.” Stephen D'Arcy Collins, Dublin Dance Festival)

What happens when equilibrium shifts, do we adapt or do we fall apart?
Two dancers struggle with competing needs for power and companionship, independence and understanding in a light-hearted and energetic duet.
Performed to a live score by Irene Buckley, Wunderbar explores the conditions of harmony and conflict in relationships, testing the ideal of striving for stability.
Wunderbar was first performed as a 15 minute extract at Dublin Dance Festival in May 2014, was developed into a full-length show which premiered at Firkin Crane in September 2014 and has since been performed at Dance Live, Aberdeen.

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. 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,…Read More
