Oona Doherty, one of Europe’s most gifted dance artists, creates a new work for Irish Modern Dance Theatre, co-commissioned by
Cork Midsummer Festival.

Almost Blue is a goodbye dance, a farewell. An attempt to move what has come before and expand through chaos back to the gentle hum that came before the beginning. It is a waltz of the inner solar system.

Almost Blue was created for Steve Batts of Echo Echo Dance Theatre Company (Derry) and is accompanied by live trumpeter John Walsh.
