Firkin Crane Theatre, Cork: TEMPO RUBATO

A new dance work by Alexandre Iseli.

Tempo Rubato is a new dance trio directed by Alexandre Iseli and created in collaboration with a team from diverse art forms and backgrounds. At the heart of the work is a slow pulse, almost a search for sanity, a form of resistance opposing the breakdown of a world that is seeing many of its patterns -- biological, geological, geopolitical -- dislocate. Tempo Rubato continues Iseli’s body of practice focused on interactions among people to recover the body as the core of our shared experience, and the complex balance between individual autonomy and collective structures.

After graduating with an MSc in biology in Switzerland in 1994, Alexandre Iseli began working with renowned dance companies across Europe including Régine Chopinot (FR), Philippe Saire (CH), Joanne Leighton (FR), and Liz Roche Company (IE). He has performed in nearly 40 countries in Europe, America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. He co-founded (with Jazmin Chiodi), Tipperary Dance and the Tipperary Dance Festival, a development and performance space with international ramifications. Including collaborations with Chiodi, he has created over 20 dances and dance films.
