Dance Of Desire Comes To NZ
The new All-Irish production DANCE OF DESIRE. is coming to NZ as part of an extensive world tour.
Produced by Michael Carr of Ceol Chiarrai Productions Dublin, this new show is described as “edgy, somewhat more adventurous than past Irish Dance shows, and full of “A” level championship performers”
ver the past year the show has played in Paris, New York, Beijing, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur and a record seven month season in Australia. After their end of year break back home, the cast will RE-commence their world tour in New Zealand with the first performance in Hamilton March 10th 2010.
Covering 13 New Zealand cities, DANCE OF DESIRE boasts a huge cast of 22 dancers and celtic musicians, plus a specialist light, sound and stage crew of 10.
DANCE OF DESIRE is described by critics as stunning and amazing. The high voltage, guaranteed all-Irish production challenges the boundaries of other Irish dance productions and has uniquely elevated the world of Irish dance to a new level.
Complete with entirely original music and choreography, from the makers of ‘Spirit of Ireland’ & ‘Dance on the Moon’, Ceol Chiarraí Productions Ltd ground breaking production DANCE OF DESIRE is undoubtedly unique in its imaginative design.
DANCE OF DESIRE is a show with everything: colour and light, wonderful original music, clever dramatic content, and incredible dancing that truly pushes the boundaries of choreography and fuses Irish dance seamlessly with Flamenco, Latin American, Middle Eastern, ballet and ballroom styles, with a few acrobatics thrown in. Added to the dazzling dance content and a strongly portrayed storyline, DANCE OF DESIRE also has a unique soundtrack composed entirely of original music.
DANCE OF DESIRE takes the traditional Irish Celtic myth of the Children of Lir and gives it a treatment reminiscent of the Kirov Ballet’s approach to Swan Lake, turning it into a tale with a happy ending
Special prices will be available for Dance schools, Family Groups and Senior Citizens. Michael Carr says “we are very proud of this, our finest ever show. Despite the state of the world economic climate, we have succeeded in presenting a world class performance within the price range of the average New Zealander – and for a production of this quality, that’s something.”
