Swan Lake / Loch na hEala
Created by Michael Keegan-Dolan

From the imagination of one of Ireland’s foremost dance and theatre makers comes a magical adaptation of one of the most famous of all story ballets, Swan Lake.
Michael Keegan-Dolan has forged a searing new vision for this beloved tale, creating a world of magical realism, powerful imagery and potent storytelling.

A critical smash in Dublin and at Sadler’s Wells, winner for Best Production at the Irish Times Theatre Awards 2016, and winner of the UK Critic’s Circle National Dance Award, this Swan Lake is rooted in a place where ancient Irish mythology and modern Ireland meet.

The Dublin based-band Slow Moving Clouds has created a new score that combines Nordic and Irish traditional music with minimalist and experimental influences. The result is a Swan Lake for our time and a stunning debut for Keegan-Dolan’s new company, Teaċ Daṁsa.

Co-production by Michael Keegan-Dolan; Sadler’s Wells Theatre London; Colours International Dance Festival, Theaterhaus Stuttgart; Dublin Theatre Festival; Theatre de la Ville, Luxembourg. With support from The Civic Theatre, Tallaght, and South Dublin County Council Arts Office.
