Work on our new Double Bill is now well underway and we’re very excited about the upcoming premiere at Firkin Crane Cork on 18 October..
The Double Bill is a programme of two brand new, contrasting duets that celebrate diverse dancing bodies. ‘Visible and Invisible’ – choreographed by John Scott for our Co-Artistic Director, Linda Fearon and guest performer Rebecca Reilly, is accompanied by a new music commission from composer Tom Lane, based on Latin plainchant. Rooted in the complementary physicalities and rapport of the two dancers, their impetus to move and then rest and then move again as they assist and support each other, ‘Visible and Invisible’ is a physical and aural narrative of travel, migration and change.
The second work in the programme – ‘Too’ – is choreographed by Croi Glan Co-Artistic Director Tara Brandel, for herself and Linda and asks ‘How are we treated as female dancers? What are our experiences? How is difference navigated? What does it mean to be seen? And who are we dancing for? Drawing on the personal experiences of the two women and the reflections of a wider group of female dancers, this brave new duet delves into the deep and complex territory of gender experience.
Lighting for both works is by Sarah Jane Shiels.
The programme has been created over a series of residencies in Dublin at Dance Ireland and in West Cork at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre and An Sanctoir.
