Bold Moves 2024

★★★★  “…they move in such heart-pounding, foot-thumping unison their intensity proves as satisfying to watch as the more refined and thoughtful steps later on.”

The Irish Times

Heart-pounding, gravity defying performances meet artistic elegance in this year’s Bold Moves 2024. See and feel compelling choreography by internationally renowned choreographers Johan Inger, Ohad Naharin, and Filipe Portugal in Ballet Ireland’s final Bold Moves programme.

 

 

 

Walking Mad

 

Originally created for the Nederlands Dans Theater, Johan Inger’s Walking Mad achieves the perfect balance between choreography and theatrical effects. Set to the well known music of Ravel’s Bolero and Arvo Pärt’s Für Alina, this intense (and sometimes comical) romp through scenes created by nine dancers and an ever-changing wall is an experience you will never forget.

Minus 16

 

On the 25th anniversary of its creation, Ohad Naharin’s Minus 16 makes a celebrated return. Featuring an eclectic score ranging from Dean Martin to mambo, techno to traditional Israeli music, Minus 16 uses improvisation and Naharin’s acclaimed ‘Gaga’ method, a unique movement language that breaks down old habits, pushing the dancers to challenge themselves in new ways. This popular piece is renowned for its unpredictability and fun that makes each performance of Minus 16 delightfully different for the audience and the dancers.
