Amú & Cótaí Dearga (Ciotóg - Ríonach Ní Néill)
Ciotóg presents an evening of two premieres by award-winning Irish choreographer Ríonach Ní Néill, in association with Dublin Dance Festival.
What if I go, where I can't follow? In this new solo, a man becomes an intrepid explorer of a familiar unknown, setting traps and safety nets of belonging to catch him as memory fails. Referencing the works of artist William Utermohlen, poet John Killick and the HSE, and fusing dance, film and text, Amú is a meditation on loss and resilience performed by internationally acclaimed dancer Robert Jackson.
Dearcadh ar shaol rúnda éadaí... Inventing an unlikely and unprovable link with shamanistic traditions, Cótaí Dearga imagines a new mask ceremony and secret history for the traditional red skirts of the Arann Islands.
