Attention Dublin-based dancers and movers: Where will you be next Thursday, 14 March at around 6.30pm? Oh yes, at the Culture Box in Temple Bar for a deadly disco session with a twist as part of the St. Patrick’s Day Festival!
Trip-nós – it’s disco but not as you know it. Experience a completely unique dance experiment mixing Ireland’s indigenous ‘sean-nós’ dance with contemporary disco-inspired moves. Trip-nós is a live performance / workshop mixing sean-nós and contemporary dance with electronic music.
Trip-nós invites you to kick loose and perform using a fusion of tradition and electronic art forms. 3 dancers bring you on a journey where two styles collide resulting in an outrageous 80’s themed dance-off! Dress to impress.
How does it work? It’s simple. First the Trip-Nós gang do their thaaang and then participants must choose which style of dance they would like to ‘represent’. They will then learn four steps or more in their preferred style which will be catagorised in numbers 1-4. Finally the two groups must battle it out in an 80’s themed dance-off and…hey presto…Trip-Nós is born! Expect some belters including the epic ‘Inspector Norse’..yeah, you know what I’m talkin bout!
There’s only room for 30 people so register here. See YOU there!
Oh and it’s free!
