Sitting in-between the two worlds of traditional and contemporary, IN LiMBO takes a journey where few have gone within Irish step dancing. The four live musicians and ensemble of six dancers have taken the basics of what makes the tradition so attractive and translated it into a new but still recognisable language of music and dance. This production introduces the audience to another possibility within a dance form that they thought they already knew.
As a dance artist, producer, educator and recipient of the 2018 Traditional Arts Project Award Kristyn Fontanella is originally from Conneticut, USA and currently resides in Galway. She has toured with Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and as the lead female role in Gaelforce Dance and is currently a dance tutor at UCD and on the MA and BA courses at Irish World Academy in UL. After successful showings of the work at Dublin Dance Festival and other international platforms, she is excited to present her latest ensemble work IN LiMBO, which creates a world between the traditional and contemporary.
“IN LiMBO seeks to answer the question ‘What is Irish Dance?’ and Kristyn Fontanella Dance presents a compelling answer in their engaging performance that sits perfectly between moods and genres.”
“The deep connection between the members of group is evident, used to full effect to create surprising moments and showcase both their individual talents and the power that a troupe can have.”
“Never straying into the alienating effect sometimes created by contemporary dance, and maintaining flexibility in their interpretation of traditional Irish dance, the company has created a unique space within their medium.” Laura Cummins, Limerick Fringe 2017
