Freedom's Gait is composed of images based on associations
and observations of certain words: independence, dependence, confinement
Robert Connor & Loretta Yurick (1990)
".performances of great beauty, spirit and strength. performance
to enjoy and admire. "
"exquisite style.from the expressionistic to the impressionistic.utterly
assured dance work. energised by the post-industrial score.."
" .a testament on the poetics of space.collisions and entanglements
that are technically provocative and engrossing.flying chairs, swinging
ropes, venetian blinds.sensationally appropriate.gripping theatre-dance
".proof of what Irish choreographers and dancers are capable of.arresting.do
The Irish Times
"Never could I have imagined that a Dance Company could so eloquently
and so movingly capture and articulate so many of the thoughts,
feelings and moments of heightened reality that made up the larger
part of my four and one-half years captivity
...I thank the Dance Theatre of Ireland for translating
into movement those inarticulate moments and experiences.in a sense
confirming that we are never alone".
