"Irish culture embraces the world in works by Darrah Carr.” - The New York Times

“Vivacious and well worth seeing.” – The Evening Herald, Dublin, Ireland

Join us for the latest from Darrah Carr Dance - New York City's own Bessie award-nominated Irish dance company! This season, three celebrated choreographers reimagine Irish dance. Christopher Caines premieres ’S an Cuan Eadrainn (And the Sea Between Us), a new commissioned work based on traditional Scots Gaelic puirt a beal, or “mouth music," sung live by the choreographer in his own arrangements. Seán Curran presents the New York premiere of his acclaimed Rakastava. And, Artistic Director Darrah Carr sets new and favorite work in the company's signature style of ModERIN - a unique blend of traditional Irish step and contemporary modern dance - to live musical accompaniment by Liz Hanley and Niall O'Leary.

During specially priced family shows, curated to inspire and ignite children's imaginations, the company will premiere The Secret of the Thin Places, a collaboration between Carr, composer Claudia Howard Queen, videographer Christopher Chu, and young performers from the Niall O'Leary School of Irish Dance.

Darrah Carr Dance's season is made possible in part by public funds from the Fund for Creative Communities, supported by the New York State Council on the Arts, and from the Manhattan Community Arts Fund, supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council administers both programs. The American Ireland Fund also supports Darrah Carr Dance's family show programs. Initial work for ’S an Cuan Eadrainn was developed for performance in From the Horse’s Mouth: The Men Dancers (2012–14) and its expansion was originally commissioned for the 2013 Tap the Yard Festival. Rakastava is part of an evening of works entitled Travel Songs - a collaboration between Seán Curran Company and The King Singers. Travel Songs was made possible by the New England Foundation for the Arts’ National Dance Project, with lead funding from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and additional funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The project was commissioned by the University of Notre Dame’s DeBartolo Performing Arts Center. Funding for The Secret of the Thin Places is provided by the University of North Texas Institute for the Advancement of the Arts IAA Fellowship.
