Kickstarter Campaign


Help us get John Scott/Valda Setterfield's Lear to Edinburgh.


“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.


Our €6000 fundraising goal will contribute to fees for the artistic and technical team for their time preparing for and at Edinburgh Fringe. In addition to this Kickstarter campaign, we are hosting our ‘100 Knights Summer Party’ event in Dublin (see below).

100 Knights Summer Party

The Liquor Rooms

5 Wellington Quay, Dublin 2

Thursday 27 July, 8-11pm


John Scott and Irish Modern Dance Theatre are hosting 100 Knights Summer Party/Cabaret - a night to end all nights. A night so full of pizazz, performance, and prosecco that all of Ireland shall be swept into a party-induced haze. Come one, come all. It is time to prepare yourselves for our Summer Cabaret at The Liquor Rooms!

 

100 Knights is part of our Kickstarter campaign Help us get Lear to Edinburgh. Inside you will be treated to performances from some of our most talented members, sprinkled throughout an evening of dancing and drinks and prizes. Rumour has it John Scott shall be aiming for a C sharp in singing his thank you arias, and a few of our more generous benefactors shall be given their own lapdance. NOT TO BE MISSED!

 

Click here to help this dysfunctional Lear family get to Edinburgh this August. 


Secure yourself a spot on the list for this show-stopping night. Tickets €10 at the door or free for all Lear supporters.


RSVP here by July 25

“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.”
