“A streamlined version of Shakespeare’s play. It shakes us up, lets us see the play anew”

Joan Acocella/The New Yorker

 

John Scott’s Lear is a  deeply personal and riveting interpretation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece.


King Lear is portrayed by New York dance legend Valda Setterfield, noted for her work with David Gordon Pick Up Company and as a soloist for Merce Cunningham. Setterfield gives a profoundly moving performance that explores the unraveling of a universe, parental love, fear of death, personal transformation and enlightenment. Toppling the hierarchy with Goneril, Regan and Cordelia portrayed by three men, including Irish dancers Ryan O’Neill and Mufutau Yusuf and young French dancer Kevin Coquelard.


Lear was commissioned by Kilkenny Arts Festival 2014. Supported by Culture Ireland.


“A timely and tender exploration of aging, loss and regret that gets to the very heart of who we are.”

 Alison Martin/Irish Daily Mail

“Everything Now - our final gesture before we’re thrown off a cliff" - John Scott


A rollercoaster ride, choreographed by John Scott - creator of New York hits Lear and Fall and Recover - with beautiful dancing men, a laughing/shouting multicultural chorus, dazzling lights, stunning sounds and physical explosions, interventions from emotionally virtuosic performers from Africa and Ireland.


Racially and politically mixed up and fucked up, supple, diverse and half beautiful, Everything Now fuses the physically brilliant with the awkward, combining formality and rigour of highly disciplined dance with elements of a 1960s happening. This is our testament. NOW!
