How to be a Dancer in Seventy-two Thousand Easy Lessons
by Michael Keegan-Dolan
From an Ireland in the 1970s to the present day, How to be a Dancer in Seventy-two Thousand Easy Lessons bends boundaries between what is lived and what is imagined, between history and destiny, between fact and fiction.
Written and choreographed by Michael Keegan-Dolan (MÁM, Swan Lake / Loch na hEala), alongside dancer and life-time collaborator Rachel Poirier.
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: 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.
