“Michael Keegan-Dolan, who has a rare gift for transforming old ballets into new, has taken the 19th-century story and hammered it into a thing of wonder.”
Loch na hEala, by Irish choreographer, writer, and director Michael Keegan-Dolan, is a unique and transcendent new work inspired by a seminal classical ballet. This contemporary collision of dance, theater, and live music from the founder of Teaċ Damsa (House of the Dance) is rooted in the meeting of ancient folklore and the modern world, and is infused with a raw, majestic energy.
In the 19/20 season, DIDA and Carolina Performing Arts will host post-performance gatherings open to the public after Rosas danst Rosas on October 9 and Loch na hEala on November 20 at Crossroads Chapel Hill at the Carolina Inn. NO RSVP (or knowledge of dance) is necessary: come grab a drink or a snack and chat with us! Learn more about DIDA here.
