Made in Dublin: The Old testament according to the loose collective
MADE IN DUBLIN, the inaugural event in Dance Ireland’s 21st anniversary year, is a special season of new dance performances, all of which were created or developed by national and international artists in DanceHouse over the past six years.
In their new work, The Loose Collective aims to make a living translation of the Old Testament, a stage-translation of this enormous body of text in its entirety. They integrate text-sampling and baroque choir, beat-boxing and diaspora-postpunk into their musical dance performance, and rearrange bible verses into unexpected combinations.
The Loose Collective is an Austrian based collective of international performing artists. It was founded in 2009 out of the desire to create dance and concert performances in a non-hierarchical structure. The Old Testament is a coproduction of Tanzquartier Wien, Kunstverein Archipelago Wien and Performance initiative 22 Graz;
