Swan Lake / Loch na hEala

By Michael Keegan Dolan
Developmental residency supported by The Civic Tallaght and South Dublin County Council

From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre-makers comes a magical new adaptation of one of the most famous story ballets in the world, Swan Lake. With beautiful dancing and powerful imagery, this new Swan Lake is rooted in the Midlands of Ireland in a place where ancient mythology and the modern world collide. Performed by a company of fourteen world-class performers including actor Mikel Murfi, this production is interwoven with storytelling, song and live music. Dublin based band Slow Moving Clouds have created a new score which combines roots in Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences.

“Keegan-Dolan has one of the most boggling and fertile dance imaginations on the planet.” THE GUARDIAN
