Dancing Duets

International double bill of dance at the Island Arts Centre

The Island Arts Centre, in association with Maiden Voyage Contemporary Dance Company, presents two duets on September 29, featuring international choreographers and the very best of local dance talent.

'Cinderella Syndrome', by Finnish choreographer Juha-Pekka Marsalo, explodes onto the stage in the Studio Theatre on Saturday, September 29 at 8pm. This gritty and humorous production explores society's obsession with image, identity and celebrity.

Fast-paced choreography fuses with a haunting score by Dan Levy to create stimulating and powerfully engaging reactions, prompting the audience to question what they least like about themselves. 

Equally provocative is 'The Match', a compelling duet from choreographer Liz Roche with composition from Bangor-born Jules Maxwell. 'The Match' focuses on the fractured nature of contemporary relationships and adopts the form of rounds in a boxing match, where a winner must prevail.

Tickets are priced at £9 (£7 concessions). To secure your tickets contact the Box Office on 028 92 509254 or visit the Island Arts Centre, the Island, Lisburn BT27 4RL.
