"We have come
to expect a lot from Dance Theatre of Ireland. This latest show
is one of their best..splendid soundscape and dancing...beautiful."
Smith, Evening Herald
visual and subtle new work .an exciting new departure for the Company.an
array of visual delights and a parade of focused dancing .
The Sunday Tribune
shows many signs of being 'human' in some of the best possible ways..excellent
dancers.all fluid, fluent, highly worked bodies .ample supplies
of good dancing. a delight to watch."
". a gigantic
white canvas on three sides. .intricate long shadows thrown by the
dancers. flooded by Mark Galione's alternately blue, violet, yellow
and red lighting . and mutated (at times) into a giant movie screen.."
What's On Where (WOW)
Light Fantastic...Sustained applause well deserved for the athletic
and controlled performances of the six dancers.fine dramatic score.stylish
black costumes by Marc O'Neill.well worth seeing."

28-minute video of Dance Theatre of Ireland's SOUL SURVIVOR
was composed by Tim Redfern, DIT's Digital Media Centre, who provided
3-d graphics for the production.
Film of Soul Survivor combines digital video of the performance
piece with the original graphics and projections to re-create a
new kind of theatrical performance on-screen. The projected imagery
in SOUL SURVIVOR is composed of 3D computer animation, digitally
treated timelapse video, automatically web-gathered imagery and
digitally captured human movement (via motion-capture) with Edinburgh
Virtual Environment Centre. The projections were composited
using a desktop broadcast video workstation.
Survivor, choreographed by Dance Theatre of Ireland's
Artistic Directors Robert Connor and Loretta Yurick, was made
possible through the support of The Arts Council, DIT's Digital
MediaCentre, EDVEC (Edinburgh Virtual Environment Centre) and SANYO.
