Join us for the latest from Darrah Carr Dance, whose ever-changing repertory never fails to dazzle and delight! Building on the success of last year’s sold-out run, renowned guest choreographer Seán Curran returns with an innovative twist for the company’s trademark style of ModERIN: a unique blend of contemporary modern dance and traditional Irish step. In this new engagement, Curran explores the emotion of lament and reveals the lyrical depths of the company’s cast of champion Irish step dancers to express sadness, longing, and regret. Set to live music, additional full-company works combining powerful percussive footwork with graceful fluidity and expressiveness will complete this expansive program.
