    Competition: Win tickets to Dublin Dance Festival

    Laurence Mackin


    The Dublin Dance Festival takes place on May 11th to 26th, with a very impressive line-up. Among the highlights are Klaus Obermaier’s Apparition, which uses dancers and technology to form sensuous patterns of light and illusions; the Irish premiere of the Trisha Brown Dance Company; and Junk Ensemble’s The Falling Song, which looks at the nature of flying and its tempestuous relationship with falling (ouch).

    For more on the festival click here, and to celebrate we have two pairs of tickets to give away to a double bill of the festival’s opening performances.

    Body and Forgetting, comes from the Liz Roche Company (formerly Rex Levitates Dance Company), and uses four figures in what promises to be a delicate and powerful dialogue as they move between different versions of themselves in the past, present and future. Here is a sneak video preview.

    Choreographer Sarah Dowling will present The Wake, “a work in which the living and the dead entwine”, featuring live traditional Irish music and performers from London’s Royal Ballet in London.

    We have two pairs of tickets for the performance of both works on Saturday, May 12th (the shows are on for two nights only). To be in with a chance to win, simply email your name, address and a contact number to lmackin@irishtimes.com. Winners will be selected at random, and the competition will close at noon on Friday, May 4th.
