The Bessie Award-nominated Darrah Carr Dance reunites with fiddler Dana Lyn and guitarist Kyle Sanna for a musical and choreographic exploration of The Coral Suite, the trad duo’s concept album inspired by the reef’s miraculous biodiversity. Lyn and Sanna perform nuanced interpretations of traditional Irish music; artistic director Darrah Carr’s champion dancers perform in her trademark style of ModERIN, a unique blend of traditional Irish step and contemporary modern dance.
