The Tiger Dublin Fringe festival finishes today, and it has been pretty amazing, I have to say. This performance is one of the final events and will contain dance and music, and Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh will perform. Full details of this free and ticketless event can be found here.
Choreographer Aoife McAtamney will premiere her latest work, The Fourteenth Visit, on the 20th of September at 3pm in the Royal Hibernian Academy, Ely Place danced by Aoife and her collaborators and accompanied by renowned fiddle player Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh.
It has been nearly 20 years since dance has featured in the gallery’s programming and this will be a day time, ticketless and FREE event! The piece will be performed during the Retrospective exhibition of celebrated landscape artist of harsh terrain, Maria Simonds-Gooding.
The Fourteenth Visit will be created by regular visits to the gallery, made by the performers during the two weeks of the Tiger Dublin Fringe. The dancers will spend time in the gallery daily, collecting movement ideas inspired by Maria’s art work and its surroundings. In the second week, musician Caoimhín Ó Raghallaigh will join them. On the final day of the Tiger Dublin Fringe, all performers meet in the main gallery of the RHA to tease out, confront and instantly compose each other’s gathered discoveries – creating a rapidly shifting improvised performance.
