From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre-makers, Michael Keegan-Dolan, comes a magical, contemporary adaptation of the most famous ballet in the world. Swan Lake/Loch na hEala transforms this age-old folk tale into a transcendent and original illumination of the familiar, with searing contemporary resonance and visceral impact.
Through powerful dancing and compelling imagery, this new and raw interpretation of Swan Lake is rooted in the midlands of Ireland where ancient mythology and the modern world collide. A company of 13 world-class performers, including beloved Irish actor Mikel Murfi, weave story-telling with song and movement. Dublin-based band Slow Moving Clouds combines traditional Nordic and Irish music with minimalist and experimental influences infusing Swan Lake/Loch na hEala with a remarkable energy.
There will be a post show talk following the performance on June 9.
