“A collection of short works first performed in 2009 and being revived in 2017 for performances at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght and The Cork Opera House. The works appear as a wash of colour, movement, rhythm and emotion; human embodiment as a dynamic event. The audience completes the picture.

A picture lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes of the sensitive observer – Mark Rothko (Painter, 1903 – 1970)”

A Note From Liz Roche, Company Manager & choreographer:

In these coming performances of 12 Minute Dances at the Civic and Cork Opera House we are re-staging a dance piece made and performed by the company nearly 8 years ago. The piece was first performed in the SS. Michael and John’s – now the Banquet Hall at Smock Alley – for the Dublin Fringe Festival. In returning to the piece now in 2017, we have the task and also the fantastic opportunity to look at the work anew. I am working with an amazing design team, Joe Vanek – set design, Catherine Fay – costume, Lighting design – Kevin Smith. Together, we have searched through the exceptional paintings of Mark Rothko, selecting the most satisfying combinations of colour and relationship and little by little they are fed into every aspect of the designs.  The dances are made, and they represent layers of colour –  as the movements are built in layer after layer of repetition – sequences that grow, adding in tiny changes, and then sometimes without even noticing, everything changes…….
