How To Be A Dancer in Seventy-two Thousand Easy Lessons

Gate Theatre, Saturday 24th September - Saturday 8th October

World Premiere

Following the success of MÁM and Swan Lake/Loch na hEala, Teaċ Daṁsa returns to the Dublin Theatre Festival with this intimate new co-production with the Gate Theatre.

A story of innocence and experience, sexuality and shame, humiliation and defiance, identity and nationality, endings and ancestry. Written and choreographed by Michael Keegan-Dolan, and performed with dancer Rachel Poirier, this world premiere presents the profound, accidental, ridiculous banality of lives lived and lives imagined.

Ce que j’ai fait, ce soir-là
Ce qu’elle a dit, ce soir-là
Réalisant mon espoir
Je me lance vers la gloire, okay

– Psychokiller, D. Byrne, C. Frantz, T. Weymouth

Saturday 24th September - Saturday 8th October
7.30pm (matinee Sat 2.30pm)
From €15
