TDP’20 international dance festival

Due to the COVID-19 situation, booking is mandatory for all ‘Onland’ events, taking place in theatres, cinemas or libraries
An action-packed performance for schools
Tilt is a new aerial dance theatre show that promises to be an exhilarating, boundary-pushing, tender and triumphant attempt to keep some kind of balance in a desperately unstable world. Offering thrills, spills and humour, the production reflects on our longing for intimacy and human connection through all our diversity and our troubling times.
Conceived as an idea in 2019, and made even more relevant by the current global situation, the show centres around a very versatile pole that flies, falls and circles, as a metaphor for instability and change. Directed by internationally-renowned, Cork based choreographer and dancer Tara Brandel and featuring a cast of Tara herself, performer Oran Leong and Composer and Musician Niall O'Connor, this Croí Glan production will thrill with Irish dance, aerial, contemporary dance, live music and song.
