'As A Matter of Fact'
Dance Theatre of
'As a Matter of Fact' is the title of a new work
from Dance Theatre of Ireland which opened last week at
the Pavilion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire and is just about
to go on tour.
Conceived, directed and choreographed by Robert
Connor and Loretta Yurick, it's notionally about facts
but really it offers a much broader look at human
society, and the world in general, focusing on themes
such as the modern obsession with time management and
the threat to the ecosystem.
It does this using a combination of an
international cast of dancers, large 3-D projections of
verbal and other graphic imagery, specially developed
for the work by the Swiss graphics outfit, 'Tenteki', a
spoken narration, and original music written and
performed live by composer Dara O'Brien.
The view shows an extract from the work performed
by dancers Vanessa Spinassa and Karl
