Following a hugely successful run in New York earlier this year, John Scott brings dance legend Valda Setterfield and his Lear project back to Ireland for shows in Cork and Dublin.


Setterfield plays King Lear, giving a profoundly moving performance that explores the unraveling of a universe, parental love, fear of death, personal transformation and enlightenment. The inimitable Setterfield is noted for her work with David Gordon Pick Up Company and as a soloist for Merce Cunningham. She has also performed in films by Woody Allen.


Toppling the hierarchy, Goneral, Regan and Cordelia are portrayed by three outstanding male dancers: Kevin Coquelard, Ryan O’Neill and Mufutau Yusuf.


"A streamlined version of Shakespeare's play, it shakes us up, lets us see the play anew"

- Joan Acocella, The New Yorker


“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.

Precious Metal / Night Wandering

December 6th - 10th

Project Arts Centre, Dublin


A double bill of dance work by John Scott and Merce Cunningham


Featuring an international team of technically brilliant and culturally diverse dancers and artists, John Scott's Precious Metal combines passion and virtuosity, humour and heartbreak. Using choral texts from Sophocles’ Antigone, expect wild jumps into space, wonderful rhythms and movements driven by speed and strength, all delivered with poignancy and grace.


Night Wandering, created by Merce Cunningham in 1958, is a duet reminiscent of snowy landscapes, described by Walter Sorrel as “a tender lullaby of love”. In keeping with the piece’s Nordic theme, the music by Bo Nilsson is characterized by bursts of activity followed by moments of silence, evoking the feeling of traveling through the spacious, and seemingly endless Northern night.


Precious Metal and Night Wandering will be performed in a double bill as part of Project 50, a season of work celebrating 50 years of Project Arts Centre.
