Firkin Crane Theatre, Cork: Ultan O’Brien & Nic gareiss

Ultan O’Brien and Nic Gareiss perform a set of new collaborations exploring space, time, and texture in Irish traditional music and percussive dance

Fiddler, violist, and composer Ultan O’Brien (Slow Moving Clouds) and percussive dancer Nic Gareiss (This is How we Fly) perform a set of new collaborations exploring space, time, and texture in Irish traditional music and percussive dance.

Ultan and Nic create sound and movement at the nexus of sight, sound, and touch, puckishly exploring what fiddle music and Irish dance reveal about both predetermined and extemporaneous composition. By engaging mimetically: fiddle, fiddler, and fiddling, dance, dancer, and dancing, the duo reimagines the erotic symbiosis of traditional music and dance through historic repertoire and new encounters via the media of sound and gesture.

Creators and Performers:
Ultan O'Brien: fiddle, viola
Nic Gareiss: percussive dance, voice

The work of Ultan O'Brien and Nic Gareiss is supported, in part, by a Dance Cork Firkin Crane Production Residency
