Almost Blue

Almost Blue directed by Oona Doherty, one of Europe’s most gifted dance artists, is a goodbye dance, a farewell. An attempt to move what has come before and expand through chaos back to the gentle hum that came before the beginning. It is a waltz of the inner solar system.

A new work for Irish Modern Dance Theatre, co-commissioned by Cork Midsummer Festival, Almost Blue, was created for dancer Steve Batts of Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company and is accompanied by a live trumpeter, John Walsh.

Supported by the Arts Council, Dublin City Council, Dance Ireland and Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company.
