“...the strain of being in two places at once, of needing to accommodate two opposing conditions of truthfulness simultaneously...” Seamus Heaney "Neither Either" a Liz Roche Company and Maiden Voyage co=production. Based on writings by Seamus Heaney Neither Either will premiere at the Ulster Bank Belfast Festival at Queens on 29 & 30 October, before transferring to Project Arts Centre, Dublin and touring the length of Ireland, from Enniskillen to Tralee throughout November. http://www.lizrochecompany.com | http://maidenvoyagedance.com
The production will be accompanied by a series of talks with various artists on Heany’s influence curated by Dr.Aoife McGrath, a lecturer in Queens University Belfast. Panels will see the likes of poet Maedbh McGuckian, director Jimmy Fay, and composer George Higgs in discussion, among others.
This is not the first time the two companies have collaborated. In 2002 Maiden Voyage and Liz Roche Company (then Rex Levitates) co-produced Senses. Maiden Voyage’s Nicola Curry says: Teaming with Liz Roche Company on this project felt right immediately not just because of our companies’ shared history but because Liz Roche is a choreographer whose detailed and articulate work is as fluid as the words from Heaney’s pen.
Liz Roche Company and Maiden Voyage Dance would like to acknowledge the support of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland, Belfast City Council, Dublin City Council, Dance Ireland and Dance Limerick.
