    Call: (612) 624-2345

    From the imagination of Michael Keegan-Dolan - one of Ireland's foremost dance and theater-makers - comes this new, contemporary adaptation of the world’s most famous ballet in which the lake is black plastic, the prince is suicidal, the swans wear convent frocks, and the set is an assemblage of concrete and steel. With a cast of eight dancers, two actors, and three musicians (Dublin-based band Slow Moving Clouds) playing an original score of traditional Irish and Nordic folk music, ancient Irish mythology meets modern Ireland head-on. The piece, laced with comic vignettes and raw, exquisite movement, has become an international hit since its sold-out premiere at the Dublin Theater Festival. The result is a world of magical realism, with a beauty as fierce and rugged as the landscape of Ireland itself.

    This event is co-presented with the Walker Art Center.
