Teac Damsa
Loch na hEala (Swan Lake)

 

Rooted in a place where ancient Irish mythology and modern Ireland meet, Loch na hEala (Swan Lake) is a Swan Lake for our time.

Dance is interwoven with storytelling, song, and live music, all performed by a company of 13 world-class performers. The Dublin-based band Slow Moving Clouds has created a score that combines Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences. Premiering in 2016, Loch na hEala (Swan Lake) has toured the world and won the Irish Times Theatre Award for Best Production in 2017 and the UK National Dance Award for Best Modern Choreography in 2018. Michael Keegan-Dolan founded Teaċ Daṁsa in 2016 as a means to forge deeper connections with the traditions, language, and music of Ireland. “Swan Lake is beautiful, brilliant, and utterly gripping.” (The Globe and Mail, Toronto)

Please note: This performance contains adult themes.

Join a post-performance artist Q&A immediately following the Friday, November 15 performance.

This international tour is supported by Culture Ireland.
