Dance performances

Memory, meditation and nature explored in dance performances – Connacht Tribune – Galway City Tribune:

Three new contemporary dance performances by local artists will be presented at the city’s Théâtre de l’Île-des-Sœurs on Friday, October 28 at 8 p.m.

Momentum will feature works by Fionnuala Doyle Wade, Jessie Keenan and Sophie Hutchinson and will be presented by Galway Dance Project.

Fionnuala Doyle Wade will perform Overload, a physical meditation for the overactive mind and restless body. It is a progression through the sensory overload of the world we live in, explored through instantaneous composition, music and the physicality of contemporary dance.

Fionnuala, originally from Seattle and living in Galway since 2014, created it in collaboration with dancer Roberta Ceginskaite and sound designer Daniel Smith.

Dancer and choreographer Jessie Keenan, originally from Cavan and residing in An Sp Idéal, will present Fragments, a duet with Sarah Ryan. This will examine the imperfect nature of memory; its instability and fragile reconstruction. Keenan asks the question: what can we hold on to as our memories fade, fade or even disappear?
