Ériu is a company of elite Irish dancers, many of whom have been principals in Riverdance, and company Artist Director, Breandán de Gallaí’s Irish dance shows are unconventional, modern and thought-provoking.
This re-interpretative, work in progress of Rite of Spring offers the power and excitement we are accustomed to in the mainstream commercial Irish dance shows, but what we experience is new and emotive, exploring themes and issues that we can all relate to.
It is a show about mob-mentality, about hiding behind others for fear of being made the target. It makes us confront our reluctance to stand up and to take charge of our own thoughts, values and feelings, and demands that we let ourselves be seen and heard regardless of the consequences.
At the heart of the work is the notion of breaking with tradition, creating new ones, and allowing those to be broken too.
Part of the Earagail Arts Festival: 23 days of music, theatre, visual arts, film, literature, circus & carnival on Ireland’s North West Atlantic seaboard, 7 to 29 July 2018. Visit eaf.ie for further information.
