A series of hybrid dance works

RUA RED gallery will act as a pop up ‘digital theatre’ space for three days in June 2016, where dancers from a variety of backgrounds and movement techniques will collaborate with dance artist in residence Cathy Coughlan (HAVOC), to present a series of new multidisciplinary works.

HAVOC have chosen to collaborate with a group of artists who, through situation or location, do not necessarily access or require a traditional theatre structures. Oil and Water will create an opportunity for live performance to be expanded through digital media allowing the dancers to fully investigate the concepts and themes within their work. The four walls of the gallery will operate as a fluid canvas or backdrop for each performance, magnifying movement and unraveling narrative.

Oil and Water do not mix – they are described as immiscible, contrasting textures, conflicting ideologies. However these substances move around each other, without contamination or compromise, one assisting the other to rise, both eventually settling back in their place of comfort. This work explores themes of isolation, conflict and mutual support as the dancers look for points of intersection and moments of synergy between the digital world around them and their physical body.
