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..

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!
