Residency 2 - 6 Oct
A Glimpse of Flesh and Blood
Rob Heaslip Dance

A Glimpse of Flesh and Blood is where dance, vocals, music, design and a mound of confetti reinterpret folk theatre to tell tales of rituals of birth and death in Gaelic Culture.

Rob Heaslip gives us a collision of popular and folk culture to create a tale of collective-memory and consciousness.

The performers are a collection of ever-shifting biographies gathered in a small space. They are a Composer, a Dramaturg, a Designer, Dancers, and Vocalists working to re-invent time honoured traditions.

Company Class Thursday 5 Oct 10.00-11.30
An improvisation drawing upon the movement language of Rob Heaslip involving personalised movement systems. Participants articulate muscle and bone to build heat, challenge stamina and delve into a personal exploration of the body. No late-comers.
