Each day during Fringe three dancers visit the Royal Hibernian Academy, which hosts the retrospective exhibition of celebrated landscape artist Maria Simonds-Gooding. Separately, they playfully collect movement ideas inspired by the art work and its surroundings. In the second week, renowned fiddle player Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh takes on the routine. On the final day, they all meet. Before your eyes they tease out, confront and instantly compose each other's gathered discoveries creating a rapidly shifting improvised performance. This revealing and fresh process marks the first choreographic collaboration with the RHA in nearly 20 years.
“Succeeds in achieving that elusive thing: distilling an aspect of human experience that can’t be verbalised.” — Irish Theatre Magazine.
Supported by the RHA, with thanks to Maria Simonds - Gooding.
