Body and Forgetting brings together the work of choreographer Liz Roche, film maker Alan Gilsenan and composer Denis Roche to create a powerful dance performance.
Inspired by the writings of Milan Kundera, Liz Roche Company’s remarkable dancers find their way through delicately woven circumstances of disappearance, loss, relationship and hope. Their attempts to hold fast to memories and objects of meaning is at the heart of this work.
Liz Roche Company is one of Ireland’s leading contemporary dance companies. Based in Dublin the company produces an exciting programme of unique dance productions. To date Liz Roche Company has performed throughout Ireland and in the UK, France, Germany, Cyprus, USA and China.
