Video - Panta Rei Danseteater 'Lullaby'

Norwegian dance company Panta Rei Danseteater, late last year, conducted a little experiment whereby three dance makers created two pieces with the same name based on the same idea, featuring three male dancers and two musicians, to see what the outcome was.

Dance Theatre of Ireland are kicking off their new tour in County Dublin next month with a couple of new works by Robert Connor & Loretta Yurick - the company directors - and Charles Linehan.

The company, now in its tenth year, will premiere Exodus (Connor/Yurick) and Grand Junction (Linehan) on November 8th at the Pavillion Theatre, Dublin. Running until the 11th of November before charging around Ireland on mini-tour ending on December 2nd in Castelblaney.

Of their new works the company says;

"In a context where 'immigration' has come to mean 'border control', people are moving all over the world. In the state of human transience what do we bring with us? How do we encounter another? Dance Theatre of Ireland's poetic vision is delivered in finely etched, highly charged, multi-disciplinary reflections on human frailty and strength. Grand Junction, by Charles Linehan is acclaimed for its rigour, eloquence and masterful attention to detail."

No plans to tour outside of Ireland for the moment - overseas touring costs a fortune you know - but we shall keep you informed about their plans and we have a possible video feature coming next month.

Touring details in our listings and aren't you impressed that we got through this news piece without making cliched references to Leprechauns, Shillelagh's or it being the 'top o' the mornin'? (you just did it! Ed!)
