John Scott Dance
Cloud Study (US Premiere)
Thursday–Saturday, April 29–30, at 8:30pm; Sunday, May 1 at 4pm
The Downstairs Theatre
John Scott returns to La MaMa with his newest work Cloud Study. Called “powerful and mesmerizing” (The Arts Review), the work uses the idea of clouds as a traveling, dreamy mass that floats above everything, witnessing, dissolving, and carrying storms. Two compelling dancers, Mufutau Yusuf (who performed in Scott’s Fall and Recover at La MaMa), an Irish dancer born in Nigeria, and Magdalena Hylak, an Ireland-based Polish dancer, are running to somewhere or from something, speaking English, Polish, and Yorùbá, communicating with their bodies, hand signs, and dance. Music by Ryan Vial, costumes by Justine Doswell, lighting design by Eric Würtz.
Cloud Study was commissioned by Galway International Arts Festival. John Scott Dance is funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
