What does it take to recover? What happens after collapse?
This new solo for Fearghus Ó Conchúir, Cure, is about overcoming difficulties. Exploring spiritual journeys of survival and recovery, it invites us to look for the way forward by drawing upon the wisdom and creativity of others. The steps towards a feeling of hope become as important as the arrival.
Fearghus Ó Conchúir is an independent choreographer and dance artist. Brought up in the Ring Gaeltacht in Ireland, he was educated at Magdalen College Oxford, before training at London Contemporary Dance School. Having danced for many other companies, his major creative preoccupation has been the relationship between bodies and buildings in the context of urban regeneration,a preoccupation that has manifested itself in film and in live performance in Europe, the US and China.
“Calmly conceived and intellectually robust, [Ó Conchúir's artistic] strategy doesn’t just produce eloquent movement, it creates powerful art.”
