Performance Double Bill
Sat 3rd June 2017 19:30
First up will be ‘Danzaire Retrospectiva’.
This is by Carolina Cabañas’ company from Costa Rica.
After intermission will be ‘Hand in Hand’ from the Netherlands.
A dancer and a circus artist meet. Together they try to dance in the air and float over the floor, but that is not always easy. Can they trust each other? In passing they discover new possibilities. Sometimes alone, often together; supporting, leaning on and hanging off each other. Falling and continuing. A vulnerable human display of being together.
Emma Insley Circus Cabaret Show
Sat 10th June 2017 19:30
Every year the Emma Insley Circus Cabaret show allows students at the Irish Aerial Dance Fest to showcase their work. Whether a piece created during the two week festival especially for the show, or something they brought to the festival to refine and polish.
