About the Show/Event

Oona Doherty - Hard to Be Soft
Information for Oona Doherty - Hard to Be Soft at Southbank Centre, West End (Dance or ballet). Called ?one of the most exciting talents to emerge in contemporary dance in recent years' by the Irish Times, Doherty uses dance as a medium for understanding and perhaps a catalyst for social change. Delving deep into the psyche of her native Belfast, the dancer and choreographer presents a searing evocation of the city's streets. The multi-disciplinary performance is rich in gloriously simple yet revealing imagery, shot through with a visceral physicality. Incense rises into the darkness. A lone character emerges, posturing defiantly, barely unable to conceal the turmoil beneath such exaggerated masculinity. An army of young women pound the stage in tribal formation, their synchronised display intimidating yet not free of vulnerability. Father and son tussle topless over a tortured family history. Unfolding over four distinct verses, this tender tribute weaves everyday stories into a tapestry of mesmerising movement, religious iconography and haunting sound by DJ David Holmes. Queen Elizabeth Hall. Part of Dance Umbrella
