Overview

Fearless Belfast choreographer Oona Doherty mixes physical and sociological theatricality, the urban dance alphabet, neoclassical ballet memories and the contemporary with an aspiration to the sacred in a riveting solo that barely holds violence at bay.

In this incarnation of the intuitive, Doherty emerges from the trunk of a 1999 Volvo and dances to house music in the street. She then leads the audience through the passageways of 92Y into Buttenwieser Hall, where she performs the acclaimed work that’s made waves in festivals across Europe.

A DJ set with performer Ross Carter follows the performance.



FRIDAY, MARCH 6 | 8 PM
SATURDAY, MARCH 7 | 4 PM & 9 PM



“Through magnificent inventiveness with space, sound and dress, Doherty evokes a stereotypical young man from the rough neighbourhoods of Northern Ireland…and attempts to find beauty and hope in an oft-ignored group on the periphery.”Time Out Barcelona

“One of the most exciting talents to emerge in contemporary dance.... Her choreography is utterly honest and viscerally intense, [revealing] embedded behaviour borne of prejudice and neglect in Northern Irish society.”The Irish Times

★★★★★ “Riveting and moving…a simply phenomenal performer.”The Times, Edinburgh Fringe Festival
