Downtown dance legend Valda Setterfield adds to a multi-year, citywide examination of the Shakespearean tragedy with a deeply personal and riveting Lear of her own. Created in collaboration with John Scott, Artistic Director of Dublin-based John Scott Dance (formerly Irish Modern Dance Theatre) whose choreography falls “somewhere between Beckett, Chaplin and Monty Python” (Tanz Magazine), Scott and Setterfield deliver a work that is both deeply personal and playful. The inimitable Setterfield, noted for her work with David Gordon Pick Up Company and as a soloist for Merce Cunningham, plays King Lear, giving a profoundly moving performance that explores the unraveling of a universe, parental love, fear of death, personal transformation and enlightenment. Toppling the hierarchy with Goneral, Regan and Cordelia portrayed by three men, including Irish dancer Ryan O’Neill and young French dancer Kevin Coquelard, Lear is a “timely and tender exploration of aging, loss and regret that gets to the very heart of who we are” (Irish Daily Mail).

Lear was originally commissioned by Kilkenny Arts Festival, Ireland. John Scott Dance is supported by Culture Ireland as part of the part of the International Culture Programme to celebrate Ireland 2016.
