Is this a reboot? Is it the future? After their disappearance, form and order are resurrected on stage. Oona Doherty’s most ambitious work to date..

Oona Doherty’s last work is a brooding full-scale piece convening twelve dancers on stage. What initially starts out like a neoclassical ballet devolves into a kind of farce. The piano concerto is pierced with gunshots, dancers fall over one by one, blue blood drips splatter the stage. This blue that the choreographer describes as the “color of loneliness veins”. Bodies get lost, cascading through space. Through dance the young choreographer interrogates unison, individualism, empathy and freedom. Marked by the civil war in Northern Ireland where she spent her childhood, Oona Doherty delivers a dance fraught with pain and rebellion, and hope.
