Dance Limerick proudly Presents the premiere of Rising Voices by Alexandre Iseli.
Rising Voices is an emotionally engaging artwork that expresses the unique beauty of each individual, and their attempt to elaborate collective meaning through a ritual journey that progressively consolidates the bonds of the group.
This new contemporary dance piece is driven by the urge to ‘give people a voice’, featuring four emerging young dancers under the artistic direction of Tipperary Dance Artistic Director, Alexandre Iseli. A collection of restless ritual attempts, Rising Voices combines creation with professionalisation in an interdisciplinary collaborative process.
Suitable for all ages.
