Swimming with my Mother and Missing
CoisCeim Dance Theatre / Duets
Experience an evening of unforgettable storytelling from CoisCeim Dance Theatre. The award-winning ‘Swimming With My Mother’ and ‘Missing’ are two extraordinary shows by David Bolger.
A joyful celebration of things we pass on and the things we inherit, ‘Swimming With My Mother’ is performed by David and his mother Madge. In this intimate dance, their life stories are told with humour to the sultry tones of Nat King Cole. Can you imagine what it might feel like if a loved one went missing?
The dance poem, ‘Missing’, is a reminder of the fragility and beauty of moments shared. Performed by the outstanding dancers Emma O’Kane and Tom Pritchard, ‘Missing’ sold out completely when it premiered at the Dublin Dance Festival last year.
Early Bird: €12 (book before 05 Jan 2014)
