‘Irresistible, revolutionary energy’ – The Irish Times *****
‘Streetwise, fast moving, clever…full of superb moments’ – Irish Examiner ****
This summer, Cork Opera House is very proud to present it’s sensational new Summer show ProdiJIG: The Revolution – a ground breaking new dance show, that will redefine Irish Dance for the next generation. An original show produced by Cork Opera House, choreographed and created by Alan Kenefick and directed and co-created by acclaimed theatre director Wayne Jordan, ProdiJIG: The Revolution breaks all of the rules of what you’re supposed to see, hear and feel at an Irish Dance show.
Led by Cork born World Champion Irish dancer Alan Kenefick, ProdiJIG rose to international fame winning Sky’s ‘Got To Dance’ in 2012. ProdiJIG: The Revolution will see Alan combine his incredible individual dancing talent with a brave new form of choreography. Joined on stage by 14 of the best modern Irish dancers in the world, this will be nothing like you’ve ever seen before.
The ShowProdiJIG: The Revolution celebrates the spirit of creativity and freedom through themes of riot and revolution. Like many rebellions that have come before, the musicians and dancers break from the confines of tradition to present the Irish dance of a new generation. The show fuses cutting edge Irish dance with urban, hip-hop and Jazz to open the door to a new world order that is more Kanye West than Far and Away!
Irish progressive traditional music band MOXIE are working with internationally acclaimed composer and sound designer Peter Power to create a soundscape that will completely open up the world of Irish Dance. Intricate melodies wrap themselves around heavy beats to form the backbone of the sound of The Revolution, happening LIVE on stage.
Breaking away from the traditions that have come before, ProdiJIG: The Revolution raises the curtain for a new era in Irish Dance – a show that breaks all the rules, a show that breathes life and creativity into old ways that will leave you breathless. It looks different, it sounds different, it feels different.
It is a show that dances outside the lines and it is absolutely unmissable…
