Dance: ‘Visible and Invisible’ and ‘Too’ double bill autumn tour
7 - 9 Nov 2019 (Past)
Dance Limerick and Ballina Arts Centre
Featuring new choreography by John Scott and Croi Glan’s Co-Artistic Director Tara Brandel, the double bill offers contrasting duets that celebrate diverse dancing bodies.
As noted by Chris O’Rourke in his review for The Arts Review, the work is “…a timely reminder that dance needs to be a safe space inclusive of everyone, Visible and Invisible and Too have much to say about expectations surrounding a dancer’s body and how we view them. But only if we’re ready to listen.”
John Scott’s Visible and Invisible, created for Co-Artistic Director, Linda Fearon and guest performer Rebecca Reilly is a physical and aural narrative of travel, migration and change that draws on the complementary physicalities and rapport of the two dancers.
Too, choreographed by Tara Brandel, for herself and Linda draws on their own personal experiences and the reflections of a wider group of female dancers, to delve into the deep and complex territory of gender experience. Meet Tara here, talking about the work.
The programme is supported by a Dance Project Grant from Arts Council and created with the added support of our partners Dance Ireland, Firkin Crane, Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre and An Sanctoir.
