Irish Modern Dance Theatre – Divine Madness

This event has ended

Project Arts Centre, Wednesday 13th November - Saturday 16th November

Irish Modern Dance Theatre presents, Divine Madness.

A dance/opera study of grief, revenge and love built around a soprano and two dancers. John Scott creates a work with soprano Orla Boylan and dancers, including the gifted Conor Thomas Doherty, who has performed in Jan Fabre's 24-hour play Mount Olympus, which is also punctuated with operatic arias.

Divine Madness explores the physicality of the soprano in the context of a dance, the singer exploring her practice beyond the concert recital. The sound score centres on elements of Elektra's aria from Richard Strauss' masterpiece Elektra, using fragmented operatic extracts from arias in a context of exile, loss and revenge.
