Michael Keegan-Dolan / Teaċ Daṁsa

MÁM

as part of Pavilion21


Mám 1 : Mountain pass.

Mám 2 : Yoke. Faoi mhám an pheaca, under the yoke of sin. 2. Lit: Obligation, duty, function.

Mám 3 : Handful. ~ mhilseán, of sweets. Scaipeann sé ina mhámanna é, he throws it away in handfuls.

Bringing together the virtuoso, Irish traditional concertina player Cormac Begley, the European classical, contemporary collective,  s t a r g a z e, a young girl and twelve international dancers from the Teac Damsa company, MÁM is a meeting place between soloist and ensemble, classical and traditional, the local and universal.

Following the success of his acclaimed re-imagining of the world-famous ballet, Swan Lake/Loch na hEala, Michael Keegan-Dolan and Teaċ Daṁsa have created another mythic yet timely production that acknowledges how life’s polarities can on occasion come together and find resolution.
 
The show was nominated for an Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production in 2020 and two UK Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards in 2021.
