New Dance Ireland listing in The New York Times:

"This recurring dance series travels to the Emerald Isle this week with 'New Dance Ireland: Choreographers of Nowness,' featuring a handful of choreographers, each of whom explore Irish identity and dance from a different angle. Participants include Jean Butler, Darrah Carr, Sean Curran and John Scott, among others, who are mixed and matched over three programs. For this week’s installment of Fridays at Noon, Scott also curates excerpts from many of these choreographers alongside a panel discussion moderated by Siobhan Burke, a dance critic for The New York Times."

New Dance Ireland in the Dance Enthusiast:

"Where do Irish traditional and contemporary dance meet in New York City? The answer is in a partnership between 92Y and the Irish Arts Center."
