CISEACH | An Embodied Manifesto 

Less than 2 weeks until CISEACH previews in Longford

We are in shambles.

Ciseach is a pulsating contemporary incantation weaving together a tapestry of dance, rhythm, live music and voice that seeks to rekindle our broken relationship with the land.

Ciseach looks to the body, to the collective, in search of a new path as the ground beneath us yields. This stirring new work by CYD is an embodied manifesto – urging us to re-member, to re-connect with our past, with nature and with each other. Collecting fragments of native wisdoms, myths and kinships, Ciseach pieces together possible futures to build the wattled causeway, the ciseach to guide us to solid ground.

PREVIEW: Backstage (Longford) Saturday 15 June 2024
PREMIERE: Project Arts Centre (Dublin) Thursday 20, Friday 21 & 22 June 2024
RUNNING TIME: 60 mins

About Turnstile  

Turnstile dancers Robyn Byrne and Eleni Roberts Kazouri perform within a glass cabinet and video projections, accompanied by music derived from forensic reports about Bloody Sunday.

These elements are woven together by directors Jazmin Chiodi and Alexandre Iseli to create a reflection on our ability to find resilience after violence, moving from historic memory to imagine present-day possibilities

About Tempo Rubato  

Performed by Robyn Byrne, Rocio Dominguez, both former associate artists at Tipperary Dance, and Eleni Roberts Kazouri, Tempo Rubato is a search for sanity in a world whose rhythms – social, environmental, geopolitical - are being massively and multiply disrupted. 

With the three female dancers at its heart, the work develops a common flow and pulse, creating a shared venture that doesn’t sacrifice individuality.

Garden as Gallery

'Garden as Gallery' returns for its final year with six outdoor performance events

'Garden as Gallery' is a wonderful outdoor performance event taking place in the gardens of Gorse Hill, Bray, Co. Wicklow. Dancers and performance artists step into the gardens to create an unplanned event of dance and sound which takes shape from the synergy between them and the powerful presence of the natural world. Set on four acres overlooking the Irish Sea this is a visual delight for the senses. The audience impacts the creation through their presence, making each performance unique. 

Conceived by dancer and choreographer Joan Davis, Garden as Gallery is the result of years of exploration of performance in the outdoors.

The dates for 2024:

APRIL 27 & 28

JULY 6 & 7

AUGUST 24 & 25
