The library at the Goethe-Institut Ireland is such a gorgeous room.
Almost ready for welcoming audiences tomorrow! 'Näher.... closer, nearer, sooner' was originally created as part of @dublinfringefest 2018 to showcase the newly refurbished Goethe-Institut Irland situated on one of Dublin’s grandest Georgian addresses, Merrion Square.
Liz Roche Company gathers again a world class team of performers and collaborators to bring you this intimate and immersive site-specific dance piece. ————————
★★★★ “… exquisitely choreographed… “Näher…closer, nearer, sooner” resonates most powerfully, transforming the Goethe-Institut into a living, breathing, resonant space full of hope and memory.”
Chris O'Rourke, The Arts Review
Created by leading Irish choreographer Liz Roche the piece is written and co-devised by prolific Irish actor and playwright, Shane O'Reilly with sound design by Roy Carroll and costumes by Catherine Fay. An exceptional cast of dancers take audiences on a thrilling dance odyssey of emotion and movement in this latest ambitious work by Liz Roche Company who continue to forge new territory in dance and audience experience.
Cast: Finola Cronin, Henry Montes, @Anne-Laure Dogot, Kévin Coquelard & Senior Dancers from DYDC.
