Electric Picnic 2023 – Minus 16

★★★★  “…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

We’re bringing ballet and techno to the Electric Picnic Festival 2023 this year!

Dublin audiences loved Ohad Naharin’s MINUS 16 when we performed this spring season so we’re bringing back and taking it big.

Find us in this year’s Theatre tent.

Feel the heart-pounding energy of Ballet Ireland live on stage!



Minus 16


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. The popular piece is renowned for its unpredictability and fun that makes each performance of Minus 16 delightfully different for the audience and the dancers.
