    From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre makers comes a magical adaptation of one of the most famous of all story ballets, ‘Swan Lake’. Michael Keegan-Dolan has forged a searing new vision for this beloved tale, creating a world of magical realism, powerful imagery and potent storytelling.
     
    A critical smash In Dublin and at Sadler’s Wells, winner for best production at the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2017, this ‘Swan Lake’ is rooted in a place where ancient Irish mythology and modern Ireland meet.  The Dublin based band Slow Moving Clouds has created a new score that combines Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences.  The result is a Swan Lake for our time and a stunning debut for Keegan-Dolan’s new company, Teaċ Daṁsa.

    ★★★★★ ‘raw, raucous, redemptive, majestic, vital and empowering.’ The Irish Times
    ★★★★★ ’The runaway success of this year’s festival, Swan Lake / Loch na hEala, likewise rolls drama, dance and music together to create a haunted and haunting piece…’  The Financial Times
    ★★★★★  ‘Michael Keegan-Dolan, who has a rare gift for transforming old ballets into new, has taken the 19th-century story and hammered it into a thing of wonder.’ Observer
