Lunchtime Performance- Heroes, John Scott
November 23, 2017 at 1:15 pm - 2:00 pm
John Scott, choreographer/operatic tenor, creates his first major solo since ‘The Bowing Dance’, using the universe of German operatic heroes: Beethoven’s ‘Fidelio’, Wagner’s ‘Die Walkure’ and ‘Siegfried’. Scott creates a journey that is dance through the physicality of his astonishing voice, to show two selves, human and mythological. The music portrays heroes battling impossible dark forces and conquering darkness. Soundscape is by French-Palestinian artist Jassem Hindi, who also collaborates with Keith Hennessy and Maira Habib. ‘Heroes’ was framed through interaction with Jonathan Burrows’ collaborator, Matteo Fargion.
John Scott is a graduate of University College Dublin and a graduate of dance at Irish National College of Dance. He apprenticed with Dublin City Ballet and Irish Theatre Ballet. He later studied with Pablo Vela, Meredith Monk, Julian Beck and Judith Malina (Living Theatre). His work has been performed in Ireland at Dublin Dance Festival, Galway International Arts Festival, Kilkenny Arts Festival, Tiger Dublin Fringe and internationally at New York Live Arts, La MaMa, Danspace Project at St Mark’s Church, PS 122, New York, and Dance Base, Edinburgh, Les Hivernales, Avignon, Tanzmesse, Dusseldorf and throughout Europe.
