Event description
An immersive and intimate dance and film installation performance, by Liz Roche Company

About this event

An immersive and intimate dance and film installation performance created by choreographer Liz Roche and filmmaker José Miguel Jiménez, with composition by David Coonan, recorded and performed by new music specialists Crash Ensemble and featuring live performances by dancers Emily Terndrup, Luke Murphy and Yumi Lee.

The installation features visual material from Dēmos – films of separation and togetherness that premiered online this May at Dublin Dance Festival. These films are a suite of interconnected short performances that explore separation and togetherness in a time when our connection to each other feels fractured. The installation gives a new take on these films and the emotional and physical states that they explored, with rehearsal footage of the dance and music integrated into the installation as a way of sharing with our audience the often unseen moments of togetherness that happen in the making of a piece.

Through the music and visuals, the dancers react and respond in ways that rebuild their sense of connection across time, place and with each other.

4 stars "If COVID provides context, Dēmos... often transcends it, speaking to existential togetherness & distance. Serving as a timely reminder that Roche is a poet of movement, the body her language, which she meticulously articulates into shapes & forms." The ArtsReview
