‘junk ensemble has created some of the most impressive contemporary dance in Ireland’ The Sunday Times
'Mesmerising' The Irish Times
‘Delicately beautiful, clever and frightening’ Irish Independent
‘junk ensemble’s creativity continues to impress' The Stage, UK
A powerful dance work from multi-award winning junk ensemble.
Exploring blindness and invisibility, Dusk Ahead shows the murky fading light of dusk when it is difficult to discern what is real and what is imagined. Dusk is the hour between dog and wolf, from domestic to wild. The high-calibre cast of international and Irish performers will also act as the band, playing live music throughout the piece.
Committed to creating works of brave and imaginative dance theatre, multi-award winning junk ensemble continue to tour nationally and internationally. ‘They have guts and ingenuity’ The Irish Times
