Dances Like A Bomb

Town Hall Theatre

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

Junk Ensemble's Dances Like a Bomb is performed by acclaimed actor Mikel Murfi and leading Irish dance artist Finola Cronin (formerly of Pina Bausch's Tanz Theater Wuppertal).

Celebrating the strength and beauty of mature bodies and challenging the cult of youth, the performers are heroic, vulnerable, comedic, acerbic, and completely themselves. They care fiercely for each other and defend their independence. As they hold each other up and push each other down, the universality of ageing and the ‘performance’ of age is unpacked, alongside the limits of love and care.

Blending visceral imagery, dance, text and music, Dances Like a Bomb is a reclaiming of the ageing body.

Duration: 60mins, no interval
Age: Recommended for 12+
