Linger to showcase Irish male dance

Wednesday, 8th March, 2017 1:00am

Dance show ‘Linger’ is a provocative and contemporary Irish dance work involving two male dancers at opposite ends of their dancing careers.

Featuring Breandán De Gallaí and Nick O’Connell, the show is described as an immersive theatrical experience and “a powerfully tender and muscular exploration of Irish gay masculinity”. The show unfolds through a rich tapestry of photography, film, music, and movement.

It is choreographed by ex-Riverdance principal Breandán de Gallaí and brought to Galway by Eriu. Ériu’s work is a 21st century reimagining of Irish dance, exploring the poetic potential of the genre and examining topics rarely dealt with through traditional dance.

The show visits Galway’s Town Hall Theatre on Thursday 16 March at 8pm. Tickets are €18 / €16 and available from or by calling 091-569777.
