Dublin Dance Festival
During the month of November, we were thrilled to welcome so many dance fans back into the theatre with our Winter 2021 Edition – a unique and very special celebration of live dance.
With an iconic work from Compagnie Maguy Marin, and long-awaited premieres from Junk Ensemble, Catherine Young Dance, and Liz Roche Company & Crash Ensemble, the energy and excitement of audiences was palpable, the support for the artists was heartwarming, and the response to each and every performance was nothing short of overwhelming.
