“In the beginning there was no time, no gods and no people but where the sea met the land a white mare made of sea-foam was born called Eiocha. Eventually she gave birth to the god Cernunnos, the horned god of the woods.
They created a man, a woman and the animals from bark from the oak tree that grew on the land.”
Using the ancient Celtic creation myth as its starting point, LORE is a work about nature, creation and destruction. A piece of modern folklore, a future myth, a pan-European tale of the interconnectedness of our beings.
Raw, earthy and moving seamlessly into and out of the floor, the physicality is as dynamic and poetic as our pasts. The energy flows from the floor and through the dancers, connecting them to the earth and each other. The work transitions from textured and sensual to crushing and driving in the blink of an eye, from a physical scream to a delicate whisper and everything in between.
Set to a soundtrack that is part Celt, part Viking and part Slavic, yet boundary pushing, the soundtrack is where the past and future meet, the music our ancestors would have made if they’d had electronic instruments as well as their traditional ones. Ultimately LORE is about humanity, the stories we share that define us and the all powerfulness of nature.
