St. Patrick’s Festival Hightlights

We were absolutely thrilled with the performance on the night. Have a look at some of the photos:

Here are some photos from the official launch of the 2013 St. Patrick’s Festival.

I’m kitted out in my funky attire representin’ Trip-Nós and joined by Minister Jimmy Deenihan, Susanna Lagan Director of St. Patrick’s Festival and cellist Kate Ellis. There were also some photos of me with a large python wrapped around me but I’m not sure they looked that great..

Make sure to join us next Thursday, 14 March for Trip-Nós live at the Culture Box, Temple Bar, Dublin at 6.30. More info in the post below..

Trip-nós (where two sessions collide) is a minute long dance film mixing sean-nós and contemporary dance with electronic and traditional Irish music.

The idea originated at Electric Picnic last year as a live show mixing sean-nós dance and trad music with a track entitled Inspector Norse by the acclaimed Norwegian DJ Todd Terje and was subsequently commissioned as part of Dance Ireland’s MINUTES IN MOTION series.

Directed by Patrick Timmons Ward and shot by Gavin FitzGerald, the film presents a cast of talented dancers and musicians based in Dublin and centers around an electronic track, composed by Galway-based DJ Dáithí ó Drónaí.

Trip-nós is all about letting go of inhibitions, enjoying dance, and merging styles you would never have imagined going together! The film has an 80’s feel and definitely needs to be taken with a pinch of salt! Enjoy!
