Croi Glan Integrated Dance Company is presenting an exciting dance double bill at Dance Limerick, Thursday, February 23. 

David Bolger’s Fancy Dress challenges what, really, is fancy dress: Is it something we wear to parties? Something to disguise our true selves? In this short, snappy trio, a walking stick becomes a magic wand in the hands of performers Jack Webb, Mike Daley and Tara Brandel.

Jess Curtis’ Remote asks are we mobilised or frozen?  At home, alone in front of our screens, do we transcend or are we trapped in our bodies?  Performers Linda Fearon and Tara Brandel use electronic media and social networking to investigate the ups and downs of our bodies within our evolving digital culture. 


Tara Brandel, artistic director and performer with Croí Glan, explains “To celebrate Croí Glan’s 10th anniversary, we have invited back two of our favourite, most performed choreographers David Bolger and Jess Curtis to create these two new works.  In David Bolger’s Fancy Dress, audiences will experience some funky moves, a few fancy dress tips and a kicking soundtrack, while with Remote, Jess Curtis applies his Berlin/San Francisco-influenced post-modern choreographic style to create this new duet which explores the effect on our bodies of our use of technology”.   
Announcing details of the performance, Jenny Traynor, Director of Dance Limerick, said “We’re delighted to welcome Croi Glan back to Dance Limerick to celebrate their 10th anniversary.  As Ireland’s leading integrated dance company, Croi Glan has continually broken new ground, creating and presenting work with dancers of all abilities.  With this double bill of Fancy Dress and Remote, Limerick audiences are in for an eye-opening evening of dance with a difference!”
