‘…raw, raucous, redemptive, majestic, vital and empowering.’ ★★★★★ Irish Times
From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre-makers comes a magical new adaptation of the most famous of all story ballets, Swan Lake. Michael Keegan-Dolan has forged a searing new vision for this beloved tale, creating a world of magical realism, powerful imagery and potent storytelling. A critical smash in Dublin and at Sadler’s Wells, this Swan Lake is rooted in a place where ancient Irish mythology and modern Ireland meet. The Dublin-based band Slow Moving Clouds has created a new score that combines Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences. The result is a Swan Lake for our time and a stunning debut by Keegan-Dolan’s new company, Teac Damsa.
