Dance: Croí Glan’s Fancy Dress and Remote at West Cork Arts Centre

18 Jun 2016 (Past)

West Cork Arts Centre

Premièring with their long-term partners Firkin Crane to mark their 10th anniversary, Croí Glan have invited back their two favourite, most performed choreographers David Bolger and Jess Curtis to create a dazzling new double bill.

Fancy Dress By David Bolger.

What is a fancy dress? Is it something we wear at parties? Something we adorn to disguise our true selves. A walking stick becomes a magic wand. It makes us dance. Dance as if no one is watching. In this short and snappy trio invite you for some funky moves, a kicking soundtrack and a few fancy dress tips. Fancy Dress is presented by choreographer David Bolger who is the Co-Founder and Artistic Director of the acclaimed CoisCéim Dance Theatre.

Remote by Jess Curtis

Mobilised or frozen… alone at home in front of our screens do we transcend or are we trapped in our bodies?

Using a remote process with electronic media and social networking, Jess Curtis applies his familiar post-modern choreographic style influenced by a Berlin/San Francisco aesthetic to create this duet that investigates the ups and downs of our bodies within our evolving digital culture. Does digital and social media enhance our democratic mobility or enforce immobilisation.

West Cork Arts Centre, Uillinn, Cork.

Saturday 18 June, 8pm

In spite of the billing, This Is isn’t a dance in progress anymore, but a fully formed piece that sets new standards for Croi Glan
