A Shadow That Leans
Mermaid Arts Centre, Wicklow | Jan 14 @ 8.00pm | €12/10
Riverbank Arts Centre, Kildare | Jan 15 @ 8.00pm | €12/10
First Fortnight festival kicks off on January 1st. A Shadow That Leans marks an exciting expansion of First Fortnight Festival into the art form of dance. With insight into the human psyche, from emptiness to empowerment and chaos to acceptance, co-curators Nick Bryson and long-term collaborator Jeff Wallace (US based dancer/psychotherapist) shape an evening that touches on a range of experiences of those with mental health issues. The evening consists of five short pieces in the theatre and plays to the strengths of the hugely expressive dancers Karen Gleeson and Aisling O’Coineen. There will be a discussion at the end of the evening on the issues raised by the works.
