DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL
(Kidd Pivot & Electric Company Theatre)
Two of Canada’s most adventurous artists, Olivier Award-winning choreographer Crystal Pite and playwright/performer Jonathon Young, join forces in this astonishing and critically acclaimed hybrid of theatre and dance.
Betroffenheit is a state of shock and bewilderment that encompasses you in the wake of a disaster. Here, a crisis-management team keeps your emergency alive, and a steady supply of “The Show” provides all the distraction, escape and pleasure you crave.
Pite’s boldly original choreography meets Young’s compelling script in this major new production. Rich in spectacle, Betroffenheit touches on universal themes of loss, trauma, addiction and recovery. Featuring six extraordinary performers and an A-team of artistic collaborators, this innovative piece is as thrilling as it is moving. A powerful testament to the transformative power of art.
This performance contains strobe-like effects, non-toxic theatrical haze, and coarse language

A chance encounter in a freezing attic results in a red-hot affair between penniless poet Rodolfo and innocent seamstress Mimi. But will their love be strong enough to survive against the odds? La bohème follows a group of friends as they struggle as artists in 1930’s Paris. Puccini’s timeless classic promises a breathtaking experience for newcomers and opera fans alike, with ravishing music and thrilling arias and ensembles.
Ben Barnes directs a sterling cast of Irish and international singers, including rising star soprano Máire Flavin (Mimi), Argentinian tenor Pablo Bemsch (Rodolfo), Sinead Campbell-Wallace (Musetta), Charles Rice (Marcello), Padraic Rowan (Colline) and Rory Musgrave (Schaunard), together with a professional chorus of twelve and a thirteen member chamber orchestra conducted by Andrew Greenwood. Design is by Joe Vanek. La bohème will be sung in Italian with English surtitles.
Opera Theatre Company celebrates 30 years touring opera through Ireland in 2016.
