Quad (Pan Pan Theatre Company/Irish Modern Dance Theatre)
Mysterious, geometric and symmetrical, Quad is an intricately choreographed movement sequence devised by Samuel Beckett. Four figures outline a quadrangle to a rapid, percussive beat. A pattern emerges and collisions are avoided. Written originally as a television play, this is a rare opportunity to see what may be Beckett’s most formal work.
Award-winning Pan Pan Theatre Company works with acclaimed dance company, Irish Modern Dance Theatre and Conor Houghton, a reader in mathematical neuroscience at Bristol University and former Trinity College Dublin lecturer, to demonstrate, explain and discuss this riveting work.
