Why is group synchronicity so alluring? What compels birds to flock in a limitless sky, or people to subconsciously coordinate their movements? What if we are all ions, electrically charged atoms moving through space?

Ten dancers explore the power of group dynamics, the sharing of a common rhythm, the sixth sense of belonging. They do not chase that fleeting moment of perfect unison. Instead, they pursue a pattern of movement, both harmonious and elusive. In doing so, this minimalistic piece offers a poetic reflection on the natural order of things and the unspoken rules which often escape us.

Enter a meditative and hypnotic universe with this new ensemble piece by Greek choreographer Christos Papadopoulos, who returns to Dublin Dance Festival following the success of the captivating Elvedon at DDF2017.

A Feast of Bones | Theatre Lovett

7pm, 25 May, 2018

Ticket Price: 15

A deliciously dark retelling of Henny Penny, the classic tale of survival.

Under the twinkling lights of a charming French café a waitress sits polishing her knives. Set in the shadows of the First World War, one cunning customer is about to be served a meal he will never forget. At Le Monde Bouleversé revenge is a dish best served cold.

 A Feast of Bones is a musical fable from Theatre Lovett featuring live music and an original score. The company take their inspiration from the story of Henny Penny, paralleling this story of five birds who joyously march towards an unforeseen doom with the jingoistic march of Europe towards a ‘glorious’ war in 1914.

Written by Frances Kay and directed by Muireann Ahern

Starring Lisa Lambe, Louis Lovett, Nico Brown, Martin Brundsen and Amelie Metcalfe
