Description

Ireland’s two-time Fringe First-winning CoisCéim Dance Theatre return to Dance Base with a multi-layered exploration of non-verbal communication. A spontaneous performance is created each day in real-time from live interviews, photography, video projection, music and choreography. 'It shifts in the mind: a strange gameshow with social media stars; a high-tech new media gym; a 24-hour news channel broadcast with the sound turned down; a dream where all the characters are you' (CircaArtMagazine.net). 'Blurring the lines between dancing and body language' **** (Irish Times). 'Rich and intoxicating' (Cliches-Magazine.com).

A subject, a participant,...

The collision of the real and projected self gives Body Language texture. As an entirely organic and bespoke experience, this impressive study of non-verbal communication, speaks volumes.
