Back by popular demand, award-winning Moveo Dance Company presents Carmen, a striking contemporary dance performance choreographed by Artistic Director, Dorian Mallia. Inspired by the fiery character, the piece is a modern take on the timeless opera, with iconic scenes reinterpreted through contemporary dance, dynamically peppered with flamenco influences.
The ever head-strong and self-sufficient Carmen is led by her persistent desire to be free to love whoever she wants. On the other hand, the innocent and chaste Micaela brings about a natural foil of contrast to the passionate and seductive lead. The reimagined dance piece explores new dimensions of other protagonists from the original story including the conflicted Don Jose and bullfighter, Escamillo. Love, desire and duty ravage the characters to create a compelling performance bursting with emotion.
This spectacle is a full display of dance excellence that Moveo has become so synonymous with, expertly paired with music composed for the performance that incorporates the essence of Bizet’s music with contemporary flair.
Carmen will be staged on Friday 1st and Sunday 3rd July at 21:00
Limited seating at €15 on a first come first served basis.
