Visible and Invisible – choreographed by John Scott Croi Glan
Croi Glan presents Visible and Invisible/Too
Croi Glan, Ireland’s leading Integrated Dance Company, presents an evening of two brand new, contrasting duets that celebrate diverse dancing bodies.
Dance Limerick welcomes back Croi Glan and John Scott (Irish Modern Dance Theatre) for a memorable and thought-provoking evening of dance this November.
Visible and Invisible – choreographed by John Scott for Croi Glan Co-Artistic Director, Linda Fearon and guest performer Rebecca Reilly, is accompanied by a new music commission from composer Tom Lane, based on Latin plainchant. Rooted in the complementary physicalities and rapport of the two dancers, their impetus to move and then rest and then move again as they assist and support each other, ‘Visible and Invisible’ is a physical and aural narrative of travel, migration and change.
The second work in the programme – Too – is choreographed by Croi Glan Co-Artistic Director Tara Brandel, for herself and Linda Fearon and asks…How are we treated as female dancers? What are our experiences?
How is difference navigated? What does it mean to be seen? And who are we dancing for? Drawing on the personal experiences of the two performers and the reflections of a wider group of female dancers interviewed personally by Brandel, this brave new duet delves into the deep and complex territory of gender experience in the wake of the MeToo movement.
The programme is supported by a Dance Project grant from Arts Council and with the added support of partners Dance Ireland and Firkin Crane.
