Unique Irish-Canadian dance production coming to Portlaoise

Sokalo Remix will be in the Dunamaise Arts Centre on March 14

An Irish-Canadian dance production will feature in the Dunamaise Arts Centre a couple of days before St Patrick’s Day.

Sokalo Remix, an Irish-Canadian co-production between Quebec-based dance company, ZØGMA, and The Dock, Leitrim, on Tuesday, March 14.

The Sokalo Remix Project is a traditional dance and music production with a difference.

This high energy show is the result of a transatlantic collaboration between Montreal-based dance company [ZØGMA] and four professional artists from the Irish traditional performing arts Edwina Guckian, Laoise Kelly, Cáitlin Nic Gabhann and Liam O Scanláin.

Liam is currently Dance Ireland’s Associate Artist in Residence.

This show melds the sean-nós tradition with high energy contemporary movement, lightening fast footwork and dynamic music.

Zogma’s form of percussive dance and Quebec folk dance can both trace their roots back to traditional Irish and French-Canadian dancing.

A transatlantic artistic collaboration grew between Zogma and four professional Irish traditional performing artists, leading to this enthralling, highly energetic production.

Tickets are priced €16/€14/€10 (Dance Schools Group Rate) and available from www.dunamaise.ie or from the Box Office. Tel: 057 8663355.
