Join a thrilling and fast moving dance explosion of Eight stunning dancers from Ireland, Angola, France, Poland and Ethiopia, including the outstanding Roscommon based Mintesinot Wolde, unleashed in a live performance to celebrate life, athleticism and joy. A cycle of dances for our times, created by John Scott and the determined dancers of Irish Modern Dance Theatre, Dances for Inside and Outside is a coming together of eight vastly different, virtuosic dancers, searching for safe space and trying to be together. They are celebrating life and searching for joy, despite the limitations imposed by Covid-19. Dances for Inside and Outside was made using social distancing and the limits of bodies being together in a space as a movement inspiration. The work embodies what we have all been through and what our reality is now. There is a vital physicality and necessity in how the dancers interact together, mixing joy and fear and trying to be safe. Dances for Inside and Outside was premiered online in 2020 and subsequently shown at Philadelphia Dance Project. Duration 45 minutes.
