Trolleys will tease and thrill in this humorous outdoor performance set to a pounding electro-acoustic score.

Type: Outdoor dance performance
Duration: 20 mins

Composer: Nick Wales

Trolleys is not your traditional performance; it is part dance, part ballet and part outdoor spectacle. As the name suggests, it’s a ballet for five supermarket trolleys that randomly appear in a public space. Two meet and fall in love. One grapples to find a friend. Three others revolt and ignite a dance of anarchy. High-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics, and street dance merge with the extraordinary world of trolleys. You’ll never go shopping in the same way again.
‘Candoco (…) has consistently pushed the expectations of their choreographers, dancers and audiences.’ –The Guardian

Square One (Ireland/Egypt) AAF
‘Tara Brandel’s contemporary dance work boldly explores such personal themes as gender, bereavement and sexual orientation.’
– The Irish Examiner
Duration: 20 mins
Choreography: Tara Brandel
Assistant choreographer: Hend Samy
Dancers: Mennatallah Azmi, Marihan Samy, and Nermine Habib
Square One is a site-specific trio performance with local Egyptian dancers, one of whom has a physical disability. Based on conceptual artist Richard Tuttle’s idea that, ‘Square one is when you get to the point where life and art become one,’ and poet Mary Oliver’s idea of the ‘soft animal self,’ this performance explores our everyday experiences of dance, movement, and the daily embodied joy of our soft animal selves. Square One is a D-CAF commission.
