DAGHDA Dance Company has lined up a six-night programme of events for St John’s Church Limerick from November 17 to 22.
Entitled Gravity and Grace, it will present an abundance of Daghda’s work, revisiting the notion of dance improvisation. The performance series provides a rare opportunity to see extraordinary dance without any representational décor.
Programmed by artistic director, Michael Klien, the week will feature dance artists Mark Carberry, Laura Dannequin, Ellen Kilsgaard, Angies Smalis and Lucy Suggate, alongside dancers from the Daghda/Garvey initiative.
November 17-18 will see a performance of Klien’s Standing in Ink. Mark Carberry and Laura Dannequin will perform this radically fresh, mindful and physical duet.
The night of November 19 will see a performance of God’s Dancehall. This is presented in collaboration with the Garvey Centre for adults with special needs. It will exhibit characteristics of a club-night, a happening and a performance.
Friday will see Mamuska Limerick and Daghda in collaboration on a production called Senses.
Saturday and Sunday nights will see Nothing Fields. This is an elegant and intimate ongoing dance installation where the audience is welcome to come and go, sit, observe, walk or converse, while drinking complimentary tea and coffee.
Daghda Dance Company have been pioneers of Irish Contemporary Choreography and Dance since 1988.
Admission is free on the Thursday and Friday nights. For further information on any of the events, call 061 467872.
