DI Residency: Junk Ensemble

Mon 16 Apr 2018 - Fri 4 May 2018
10:00 - 18:00

After a development period in DanceHouse in late 2017, Junk Ensemble continue their residency for three weeks to complete their development and rehearsal process for their new work, Dolores.

Inspired by Vladimir Nabokov’s poetic and disturbing novel LolitaDolores is a powerful, uncompromising work which offers a new take on the story.

Told from the perspective of the once-silenced girl, Dolores gives voice to three distinct aspects of the character: the neglected and traumatised child, the candy-fed girl filled with American hopes and dreams, and the enraged woman full of fire and revenge.

Featuring a cast of acclaimed Irish and international performers, including actor Mikel Murfi and performance artist Amanda Coogan, this piece responds to Nabokov’s evocative text to expose the unsettling abuse and tragedy of a young girl. Junk Ensemble creates an immersive experience as they lead the audience through the intricately designed rooms of the performance space.

This piece will be performed as part of Dublin Dance Festival @ The Chocolate Factory, 8-13 May 2018.  More information and booking here.
