Allow Everything Sometimes, a theatre/contemporary dance piece by dance artist Nora Rodriguez, in collaboration with poet Shane Vaughan and actor Kevin Kiely Jr will be performed at Dance Limerick on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 June at 8pm. This intriguing piece developed for Pulse, the City of Culture theatre legacy project which was performed in the Red Cross Hall last year, returns in an updated guise in Dance Limerick.The piece was eclectic and dreamlike – unsurprising to discover the idea emanated from a dream that Rodriguez had – but no less compelling given the central performances of three very impressive performers, meeting at the intersection of dance, poetry, theatre and film. Ms. Rodriguez tells me that fraternal ties, memories and death were the themes explored, inviting the audience to “explore all avenues of creation within a framework of impermanence”
“Things do or do not last. What shifts them back into the fold of memory, or of unknowing? What use is the written word in darkness, or the spoken word in silence?
“The piece does not seek to answer these and other questions, but to highlight their existence, allowing room for further exploration by the audience, so that they can reach their own interpretation or conclusions. Shane, Kevin and I hope that, with our diverse performance skills of dance, poetry, theatre and film, we are creating something moving, thought-provoking and unique for the audience to experience.”
“(Allow) Everything Sometimes” is supported by Limerick City and County Council and Dance Limerick.
