From an Ireland in the 1970s to the present day, How to Be a Dancer... bends boundaries between what is lived and what is imagined and between history and destiny.
From Teaċ Daṁsa, the makers of Swan Lake / Loch Na hEala and MÁM, it is written and choreographed by Michael Keegan-Dolan who performs onstage for the first time in over twenty years, alongside dancer and life-time collaborator Rachel Poirier.
It is a dance down a rabbit hole: nationality, identity, racism, body-image, death, love, ancestor worship, veneration, innocence and experience, sexuality and shame, defiance, humiliation and awakening.
★★★★ “This coming of age journey of dance, text, and theatre, [is] a treasure trove of large and little joys” – The Arts Review
