The Winner of the Best Production Award at the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2016 returns.
From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre makers, Michael Keegan-Dolan, comes a magical adaptation of one of the most famous story ballets in the world, Swan Lake.
With beautiful dancing and powerful imagery, this interpretation of Swan Lake is rooted in the Midlands of Ireland in a place where ancient mythology and the modern world collide. Performed by a company of 13 world-class performers including actor Mikel Murfi, this production is interwoven with story-telling, song and live music.
Dublin-based band Slow Moving Clouds have created a new score which combines roots in Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences.
Contains adult themes.
Latecomers cannot be admitted.
Swan Lake/Loch na hEala is a co-production by Michael Keegan-Dolan, Sadler’s Wells London, Colours International Dance Festival, Theaterhaus Stuttgart, Dublin Theatre Festival and Theatre de la Ville Luxembourg. With support from Civic Theatre Tallaght and South Dublin Council.
Swan Lake/Loch na hEala is also touring to NOMAD venues at Donegal, Roscommon, Sligo, Kildare, Westmeath, Louth, Cavan and Longford. Full details are available here.
