Slow Down - T1430563001With jubilant detachment, Dance Theatre of Ireland bring alive a very beautiful work called ‘Slow Down’, choreographed by the Paris-based choreographer Martine Pisani. In this playground for six dancers, Slow Down explores the insignificant troubles, the practical jokes, the awkwardness, and the barricades that make human relationships come alive. Other worlds come to mind: those of Charlie Chaplin or Jacques Tati. Six characters reveal secrets and obstacles of a public performance during a stage séance, outlining what it means, "to be on the stage". Their hesitation, lost orientation, inarticulate declarations, and even sophisticated movement sequences in a "non-dance" style, discretely find irony in the everyday demands of discipline, creativity, concentration and ardour. Don't miss it! Deliciously fun.

In a context where ‘immigration’ has come to mean “border control”, people are moving (legally or illicitly) all over the world. What do we bring with us? What do we leave behind? How do we encounter another? Grand Junction is a signature work by eminent UK Choreographer Charles Linehan acclaimed for its eloquence and masterful attention to detail. Always visually arresting, Dance Theatre of Ireland’s work permeates the senses with an intelligent thoughtfulness that playfully and skilfully tells us more about ourselves. ‘… incredibly inventive … astonishing … extraordinary … beautiful …’ The View.
