For one night only in the Olympia Theatre, on the 5th May. Experience an intense blend of Classical and Street Dance Theatre, with 'The Watchmaker'.
This ballet is unique in the way that it brings street dance into the theatre and gives it a central focus.
It unites professional dancers of various styles (classical ballet, modern dance, hip hop, popping, break dance and krump), nationalities and cultures (Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Russia, Brasil, Argentina, France, Italy, Australia, Turkey, Poland, South Africa). ErnBotTik who performs the part of the Watchmaker dances in the popping style. He is one of the few professionals who dance and teach popping in Ireland.
'The Watchmaker' presents the reality of people living in a busy modern city. Lost amidst the hustle and bustle of routine, precious moments of life slip by unappreciated. By means of dance we see family disputes, children neglected, self-criticism and addiction. The main character is a watchmaker. He is aware of every moment.
The ballet touches upon a universal issue: that of happiness, of self-actualisation and well-being available to us every day.
