Sokalo Remix

Various
Maison des arts de Laval
Festival La Grande Rencontre
Café-théâtre Graffiti
Corporation de la sale de spectacle

Accompanied by virtuoso Irish harpist Laoise Kelly and Quebec fiddler Marie-Pierre Lecault and Irish dancers, Caitlín Nic Gabhann, Edwina Guckian and Liam Ó Scanláin. This is an Irish/ Canadian co-production between Quebec based [ZØGMA] and The Dock, Leitrim. An exciting show melding the sean-nós tradition with high energy contemporary movement, lightening fast footwork and dynamic music.

When the urban rhythms in Sokalo meet and intermingle with the rural rhythms of traditional dance and music in Ireland, the result is magical.

Zogma's interest in Irish dance stems from the links between their form of percussive dance, and indeed Quebec folk dance, that specifically traces its roots back to traditional Irish and French-Canadian dancing.
