DI Partnership Residency: Breandan de Gallai

Wed 12 Feb 2020 - Fri 14 Feb 2020
10:00 - 18:00

Breandán de Gallaí is dancer and choreographer.
In 2010 he set up Ériu, a professional contemporary Irish dance company, with the aim to promote Irish dance as a living, ever-evolving tradition, through the creation of new work that educates, surprises and inspires.
His works to date include Noċtú, Rite of Spring, Lïnger and Aon.
In 2013 he completed an PhD Arts Practice (UL) on the contemporisation of Irish dancing.

While in residence, Breandán will be working on:

Walls Talk 
Project Arts Centre 25 - 29 February 2020.

Walls Talk is a dance piece for solo dancer, Breandán de Gallaí, and singer, Gina Boreham, supported by pre-recorded arrangements of jazz classics by 2 composers.

The show title comes from the expression ‘If these walls could talk’. The work considers the notion of memory being recorded in the material world around us: all our actions, our feelings and thoughts, frozen in matter and energy, every material akin to magnetic recording tape, the disturbances we create remaining there for eternity.
