The CCI is partnering the Théâtre de la Ville, Paris in presenting this new co-production by the internationally acclaimed Irish dance company Teaċ Daṁsa and the Gate Theatre Dublin.

To be a dancer is to be alive! Yet life is made up of dreams and realities. Lauded notably for Mám and Swan Lake, the choreographer Michael Keegan-Dolan and dancer Rachel Poirier take us on a quirky, joyous journey through reality and fiction, modesty and desire, bravery and humiliation, innocence and experience. Along the way, they come to terms with the hopes and disappointments that make up the essence of life... and that of a dancer!
