'Crossing' a spectacular new show from Animated State Dance Theatre Company brings a breathtaking collaboration between dancer, poet, painter, musician, singer and filmmaker to the Theatre Royal during the Tall Ships Festival.
'Crossing' captures the spirit of sea voyage; the resilience and fragility of the human spirit; the formidable presence and seductive power of the oceans. Wildly engrossing and wonderfully accessible - a sensual feast suitable for all ages. This cutting edge contemporary dance theatre production promises to be the hit of the Tall Ships Festival.
Choreographer Libby Seward is delighted to be working with UK based dancer Ezequiel Oliveira and an impressive team of local artists; Poet Mark Roper, Visual Artist Ben Hennessy, Composer Joe Harney, Designer Clare Horgan, Filmmaker John Loftus and Sean nós singer Áine Uí Cheallaigh (Riverdance).
Here's a sense of the buzz that surrounds this ground-breaking production:
"Writing poetry is by definition a solitary activity. Crossinghas allowed me to share work with artists from many different disciplines, and to be guided by their suggestions. In a very real sense I'm seeing my words made flesh, which is both a challenge and a great pleasure". Mark Roper
