Breandán de Gallaí/Ériu | Single...Jig?

What it’s like to be single. Being single. Single...jig. port singil. Single …Jig?

Breandán de Gallaí's new ensemble work for Ériu is about being single in the digital age, creating a tale of uploaded personal profiles more in line with who you think you should be rather than who you really are.

A giant presence in the evolution, and revolution, of Irish step-dance, Breandán de Gallaí, performer/choreographer/television presenter/academic, has been instrumental in bringing Irish step dance into the contemporary arts lexicon. He achieved global recognition as principal dancer in Riverdance & his choreography pushes the boundaries of Irish step dance as an art-form, from contemporary Irish dance ballet Rite of Spring, the multi-award nominated Nochtú, to this year’s Linger, which tackled issues of sexuality and ageing.

“turns Irish step dancing into a movement vocabulary that can express a full range of emotion, not just virtuosic display” The Villager, New York

Oona Doherty | Hope Hunt

A surrealist sweat journey through European stereotypes of masculinity. Hope Hunt, originally a male solo, is brought to Galway in this special edition performed by Oona Doherty. A rhythmical kinetic journey between the flesh and the soul.

Oona Doherty is one of Ireland’s most exciting young choreographers. As a performer, she has worked across Europe, and in Ireland with Ponydance and Emma Martin Dance. She is currently Hatch  Artist in Residence at the MAC Belfast and this year’s Reveal Artist with Prime Cut Productions Belfast.
