CULTURAL MISUNDERSTANDINGS and the life of Van Gogh are the inspiration behind two of three new dance shows from the Cathy Sharp Dance Ensemble.
The Cathy Sharp Dance Ensemble will present Sometime Salvation Excerpts, T 4 2, and Van Gogh Variations, in the Town Hall Theatre on Monday.
American choreographer Nicolo Fonte’s Sometime Salvation Excerpts is a study in precise and beautiful motion; T 4 2 takes a humorous look at cultural habits and misunderstandings between Swiss choreographer/dancer Félix Duméril and his Japanese collaborator Misato Inoue; Van Gogh Variations is Cathy Sharp’s poetic interpretation of facets of Vincent van Gogh’s life based on his letters to his brother.
The company consists of eight full time dancers and has to date produced more than 20 new choreographs. They have a strong interest in Ireland and have toured regularly here over a number of years.
Tickets are available from the Town Hall on 091 - 569777 and www.tht.ie
