From 4 to 19 June, Atelier de Paris-Carolyn Carlson is putting on an international and innovative dance festival “June Events”. The Atelier is based in the Cartoucherie, a former gunpowder factory in Vincennes that has been home to internationally recognised theatre companies since the 1970s. In conjunction with the 2013 edition of June Events, the CCI is presenting the virtuoso Irish dancer Colin Dunne. Following his rise to fame with Riverdance, Dunne has established an international reputation for his solo performances that combine traditional Irish with modern dance in a magical way. In 2008, he created Out of Time, a brilliant ‘tour de force’ combing the best of contemporary dance with sheer audacity – both physical and aesthetic. Gesture, text, music and video become one in this phenomenal solo performance to take place at the Cartoucherie.
