Cure (2013) is a dance work by Fearghus Ó Conchúir about the process of getting over challenges, about what’s needed to survive and about the journey in hope as much the arrival. It’s a work that emerges from the experience of collapse – personal, political, moral, economic – and, wondering what next, invites many different perspectives to look for the way ahead.
The project is unique in its continuation and transformation of the successful partnership between Fearghus and the exceptional creative team involved in his major work from 2011, Tabernacle. Fearghus has commissioned each of the 5 Tabernacle performers as well as visual artist Sarah Browne to make a short new choreography for him. With the artists, Fearghus assembles the six pieces into an evening-length work, Cure, that premiered in the Dublin Dance Festival in May 2013.
