Fulcrum
(Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre )

Inspired by some of the themes of Samuel Beckett’s play Catastophe, Fulcrum explores the complexity of human dependency and the treacherous nature of power.

Set to an original score by Andy Garbi, two dancers test the fragile and ever-shifting balance of control and power within relationships. Their bodies interact, react and counteract each other in a duet of intricate and emotionally charged movement. Combining vocal pieces, breath chanting, music, and dance, this performance is a collaborative response to ideas of power and disempowerment – both on a societal and a personal level.

"Two dancers' bodies balance together like precarious sculptures as they manoeuvre around each other in a constantly evolving duet that is utterly compelling." - Irish Times
