Fresh from rave reviews and standing ovations in Avignon, New York and Edinburgh, Irish Modern Dance Theatre brings an evening of four athletic and hilarious dance pieces to the Abbey Theatre.

Firm favourite ACTIONS is a sweeping and vigorous performance by two incredible dancers, Ashley Chen and Philip Connaughton (Alice in Funderland).

Irish Modern Dance Theatre will also perform the Irish Premiere of the stunning solo Totem Ancestor, created by Merce Cunnigham, one of the most important choreographers of our time. The Bowing Dancea Beckett-like solo performed by John Scott and The Big Message, a frantic and funny new piece designed for rising star Kevin Coquelard conclude this energetic and adventurous programme.’
