ACTIONS

ACTIONS is a physical conversation between two individuals in empty space.

Two outstanding male dancers merge and break apart - a forceful resistance to merging and the breaking up is the motivation for the movement. The dance material is a battle through the space using physicality, lifts, falls, text and sound with the dancers alternately throwing their bodies together then fragmenting into threads of raw movement.

ACTIONS is funny and tender and human. It is performed as a form of ’work in progress.’ The dancers are engaged in a task of executing difficult and exerting dance but also commenting on the dance, their states of mind.

“It’s wonderfully enjoyable, skillfully paced, and full of small surprises..... In its own way, Actions tells us much about affability under pressure, diligence, and a feistiness that doesn’t negate the men’s respect for each other" - Deborah Jowitt, The Village Voice

​ "With the athletic twists and syncopated rhythms in John Scott’s choreography...it becomes a celebration of dance as an art form" - Mary Brennan, The Herald

​"In Actions, created by John Scott for Irish Modern Dance Theatre, Daniel Squire (big, brawny and White) and Andre Zachery (compact, wiry and Black) perform to vibrant and witty effect an increasingly sweat-soaked series of movement tasks accompanied only by their own improvised dialogue" - Donald Hutera, London , The Times
