CoisCéim Dance Theatre's The Piece With The Drums by David Bolger
WORLD PREMIERE | 17-28 JANUARY 2023
We vibe, we vibrate, hearts pumping, rhythm jumping,
Drumming up the earth’s vibrations,
Infusing our heartbeat, our breath…
Pulsating with theatrical magic, CoisCéim Dance Theatre is back at Project Arts Centre with THE PIECE WITH THE DRUMS – a driving dance narrative between dancer and percussion. Directed and choreographed by David Bolger, with music, beats and everything in between by pioneering Jazz percussionist Conor Guilfoyle, this major new work is a colourful exploration of relationships, spirituality, and our connection to rhythm, life and the cosmos.
With humour and swift sharp dancing from a cast of exceptional artists Diarmuid Armstrong, Justine Cooper, Ghaliah Conroy, Ivonne Kalter, Jonathan Mitchell and Alex O’Neill, it features set & costume design by Katie Davenport and is bathed in brilliant light by Eamon Fox.
