INVENTIONS

The team behind the award-winning Lear, a 2014 Kilkenny Arts Festival commission, John Scott, Tom Lane, Eric Wurtz, returns with Inventions, a dynamic new work centered around two extraordinary women: Oona Doherty, one of Europe's most gifted dance artists, and 83-year-old dance legend Valda Setterfield, winner of the Edinburgh Festival's Herald Angel Award for her portrayal of Lear.

Taking place in the atmospheric Carlton Ballroom, a space where couples meet, Inventions focuses on two contrasting couples, one falling in love, the other falling into an abyss. Choreographed by John Scott and inspired by the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, this thrilling work will weave new stories in the old ballroom that echoes to the memory of dances past.
