Teaċ Damsa And Gate Theatre, Ireland

How to be a Dancer in Seventy- Two Thousand Easy Lessons

A story of innocence and experience, sexuality and shame, humiliation and defiance, identity and nationality, endings and ancestry. Written and choreographed by Michael Keegan-Dolan and performed with dancer Rachel Poirier, How To Be A Dancer In Seventy-Two Thousand Easy Lessons presents the profound, accidental, ridiculous banality of lives lived and lives imagined.

Following the success of MÁM and Swan Lake/Loch na hEala, Teaċ Daṁsa return to the festival with this intimate new co-production with the Gate Theatre.

Ce que j'ai fait, ce soir-là

Ce qu'elle a dit, ce soir-là

Réalisant mon espoir

Je me lance vers la gloire, okay
