Critical Voices 3 - Programme

Deborah Hay 1

Film Base

Tuesday 7 November  6.30pm

Deborah Hay, legendary choreographer, author and dance visionary, is conducting  a week of workshops with Irish Modern Dance Theatre. During her residency, as part of Critical Voices 3, Hay will give a free public talk: A Lecture on the Performance of Beauty. The lecture promises to be very revealing of Hay’s process and is a rare opportunity for an audience to hear about her creative impulses and see the difference from one performance to the next. It is a must for all interested in dance and choreography.

My question is, ˜can a formal and stimulating adherence to a prescribed set of hypothetical conditions be seen as choreography even if there is no learned movement?” – Deborah Hay

notes for the performer of Beauty

What if the you who dances is less like a dancer and more like a computational neuroscientist whose research now defines our current understanding of consciousness and normalcy?

A Lecture on Beauty will be followed by question and answer session.

Admission to this event is free but places should be reserved: to book contact Irish Modern Dance Theatre on +353 1 671 5113 or imdt@iol.ie
