Emma Martin Dance (Ireland)


Tundra is a wild and dangerous place inhabited by a cast of outsiders, where tension and absurdity simmer and the unseen world stirs. Reality and fantasy blur as the characters meet their darker selves and strive to escape to an imagined future filled with hope and possibility.

Summoning beauty and transformation, Tundra explores the poetry of heaven and hell erupting in and around all of us via folklore and pom poms, in an atmosphere reminiscent of a David Lynch film.

Following the acclaimed show Dogs (Winner Best Production, Dublin Fringe Festival 2012), Emma Martin Dance presents a bold and ambitious show to open the 10th Dublin Dance Festival, featuring an exciting blend of theatre, live music and dance.

Sensationally choreographed ... exquisite and raw The Irish Times on Dogs
