Out of Time is Colin Dunne’s first full-length solo production. In this multi-media show he seamlessly integrates movement, text, film and sound design with the step dance tradition for which he is internationally acclaimed, to offer a contemporary perspective of the art form.
Collaborating with sound engineer Fionán de Barra, Dunne’s percussive footwork is digitally processed live then looped, remixed and layered to create a hauntingly evocative soundscore. He is joined onstage by projected archival images of dancers from the 1930’s onwards – including himself as a ten year old boy. Movement, sound and image come together to create a provocative dialogue between past and present.
Intimate and playful, Out of Time is both an unsentimental homage to Irish step dance, and a bold investigation of Dunne’s personal and artistic relationship with a tradition that has shaped his life.
Out of Time will delight and provoke in equal measure
.. an intimate, sincere and funny artistic calling card which tells us why he is who he is, and how he is where he is
