Here’s a taster of the fantastic ProdiJig; the Revolution of Irish Dance. Opening this July at the Cork Opera House. This promises to be an exhilarating show, the preview videos are amazing.
Working with revolutionary young Cork born choreographer and World Champion Irish dancer Alan Kenefick, and his award winning troupe of dancers, Cork Opera House is proud to be bringing to the stage this ground breaking new Irish dance show, showcasing the tradition of Irish dance as we’ve never seen it before.
Spearheaded by the electric choreography of Alan Kenefick, ProdiJIG: The Revolution ushers in a new age of Irish dance for the 21st century. The show will fuse electronic dance music with traditional music as Cork Opera House brings together pioneering figures in the electronic dance and Traditional Irish music scenes.
At the coalface of innovation in Irish Dance since winning Sky’s Got To Dance (2012), ProdiJIG features 22 of the world’s best Irish Dancers telling the story of the journey of Irish dance, an evolution of the dance form for generations old and new.
Speaking at the launch of ProdiJIG: The Revolution, Cork Opera House CEO Eibhlin Gleeson acknowledges the role that Cork Opera House plays in support of the development of exciting new work, both nationally and internationally:
‘Cork Opera House prides itself on bringing new and innovative events to our stage. As we look forward to a very important year culturally in this country, it’s very apt that we are welcoming a Cork born, internationally renowned choreographer and dancer, who is coming home to the Cork Opera House stage in what is going to be one of the most exciting and exhilarating shows that we have ever produced.’
We’re looking forward to this!
