Atmospheric. Evocative. Haunting.

Body and Forgetting brings together the work of choreographer Liz Roche, film maker Alan Gilsenan and composer Denis Roche to create a powerful dance performance.

Inspired by the writings of Milan Kundera, Liz Roche Company’s remarkable dancers find their way through delicately woven circumstances of disappearance, loss, relationship and hope. Their attempts to hold fast to memories and objects of meaning is at the heart of this work.

Following the success of Body and Forgetting at the 2012 Dublin Dance Festival the Abbey Theatre is delighted to welcome this work by the Liz Roche Company to the Peacock stage, prior to the work’s national and U.K. tour:

I know I’m early on this but I just wanted to say how excited I am to see Body and Forgetting next week. I was overwhelmed with the beauty and poignancy of Body and Forgetting at the Dublin Dance festival last year, one of my favourite dance shows I saw during the festival.
