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
