The story of an Irish marriage. Maisie and Dermot are the perfect picture of incompatibility. Married in 1950, they tell us about their life together from early disillusion to late acceptance.

HYPERACTIVE

By turns poignant and hilarious, A Galway Girl shows us the ups and downs of a shared life that was a touching mixture of humour and tragedy, held together by a love that endured.

CHOREOGRAPHY BY JOHN SCOTT MUSIC BY MEREDITH MONK Dancers: Marcus Bellamy Ashley Chen Philip Connaughton Kevin Coquillard Winston Dynamite Brown

First produced in 1979, A Galway Girl was a hit in England, Ireland and South Africa and remains a beautifully observed play and a fascinating social document.

Hot on the heels of John Scott’s internationally successful Actions and Body Duet, comes Hyperactive, an explosive and thrilling new work for five virtuoso male dancers. Hyperactive is wonderfully enjoyable, using frenetic falls, athletic jumps and physical extensions. A development from Scott’s hit Actions – Hyperactive is a live human architecture installation with the finest cast of male dance talent from Merce Cunningham, Alvin Ailey, the Broadway musical Spiderman and the TV musical series, Smash.
