Junk Ensemble bring dancing in the dusk to Belfast
A DANCE show featuring hundreds of golden threads, live cello and "one of the most intense kisses seen on stage" comes to Belfast on Monday.
Dance theatre company Junk Ensemble's show Dusk Ahead premiered at Dublin Theatre Festival last year. Created and choreographed by Jessica and Megan Kennedy – the twin sisters who set up Junk Ensemble and who have been artists-in-residence at Tate Britain – Dusk Ahead explores blindness and vulnerability.
“It is inspired by the twilight hour when day crosses into night,” says Jessica. “The French have a saying 'L'heure entre chien et loup', meaning the hour between dog and wolf. We were interested in transformations – to cross the line from safe to wild.”
The show features a cast of international and Irish performers (Justine Cooper, Miguel do Vale, Ramona Nagabczynski, Ryan O'Neill and Jaiotz Osa), with live cello from Lioba Petrie.
