DI Residency: Junk Ensemble

Mon 24 Jul 2017 - Fri 1 Sep 2017
10:00 - 18:00

Junk Ensemble are in residence creating and rehearsing their new work, Soldier Still, which will be premiered in September.

We are delighted to work with Junk Ensemble on the Design for Dance programme, connected to the development period for this work and the creative team involved.

Soldier Still is about violence. A new dance theatre work that blends movement, text, music, real stories and real people, creating a harrowing tale of beauty and brutality. A cast of Irish and international dancers and former soldiers collaborate with an exceptional creative team to explore the viciousness, the vulnerability and the trauma of violence. Previous Artists-in-Residence at Tate Britain, award-winning Junk Ensemble have built a reputation in Ireland as dance innovators.
