Jean Butler's last Danspace commission, hurry (2013), invoked the choreographer's celebrated past in Irish Step Dance. Her new duet, this is an Irish dance, created with Belfast­ based cellist Neil Martin further unearths her roots by returning to the relationship between live music and movement as the compositional departure point for the work.
