Do you enjoy dancing? Would you like to try something new? Join The High Kicks of Limerick, an ensemble of dancers aged 50yrs or over for a performance project this May.
Inspired by the centenary of the Limerick Soviet The High Kicks will work alongside choreographer Jessie Keenan to create a new dance performance. This work will draw on the increasing pressure and tension between the British Military and the workers of Limerick just before the strike, and the sudden, dramatic breaking point that resulted in the formation of a ten day soviet. The High Kicks will create a dance piece that re-imagines the exceptional atmosphere and energy within Limerick during April 1919.
