5 – 14 AUGUST 2022
Edinburgh Festival 2022 – Bold Moves
“Virtuostic, one dark, the other light bursting with irrepressible humour, this contrasting double bill Us choreographed by Zoë Ashe-Browne and Strokes Through the Tail by Marguerite Donlon from Ballet Ireland may well be the stand-out show at this year’s Dance Base Fringe.”
Ballet Ireland returns to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2022 with a double-bill of exhilarating and dynamic choreography by Marguerite Donlon and Zoë Ashe-Browne.
Strokes Through the Tail
Set to Mozart’s Symphony No. 40, Irish choreographer Marguerite Donlon’s Strokes Through the Tail combines buckets of humour and a delightful hint of irreverence.
Re-staging: Yamila Khodr
Costumes: Branimira Ivanova
Lighting: Ernst Schiessl
Music: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
US is a short dance piece created by Irish choreographer Zoë Ashe-Browne. Referencing the dancers own experiences of emigrating from home to further their professional development, this piece tells the story of the friendships and relationships people form away from home and the significance they can hold for a lifetime.
‘Zoë Ashe-Browne’s choreography is startling, full of angular, unexpected poses, hugely experimental and exciting informed by her classical ballet experience as a dancer but also studying under modernists like her mentor, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Alain Platel and Crystal Pite.’
