A huge hit at Dublin Theatre Festival last year, How To Be A Dancer In Seventy-Two Thousand Easy Lessons is a dance down a rabbit hole of nationality, identity, racism, body-image, culture, death, love, ancestor worship, veneration, innocence and experience, sexuality and shame, defiance, humiliation and awakening.

This is a powerful coming of age work which is both playful and provocative. From an Ireland in the 1970s to the present day, How To Be A Dancer In Seventy-Two Thousand Easy Lessons blurs the boundaries between what is lived and what is imagined, between history and destiny, between fact and fiction.

Written and choreographed by Michael Keegan-Dolan, alongside dancer and life-time collaborator Rachel Poirier.

Duration: 1 hour and 30 minutes. No interval
