Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre is presenting its recent professional production FUNK at ABSOLUT Fringe 2012 and we are asking for your generous help and support to do so.
FUNK involves 6 dancers from 6 European Countries performing quirky and quality contemporary movement to the funkiest sound track you have ever heard.
FUNK is an exciting, energizing, inspiring performance so why not help us stage it and then come along and have the funkiest night out you can have. FUNK will be presented in the Samuel Beckett Theatre as part of ABSOLUT Fringe.
Your support would play a vital role in helping ensuring we can bring this performance to a wider public and raise the profile of our work. We are committed to making work in Fermanagh and presenting it to as wide an audience as possible. ABSOLUT Fringe offers us a fantastic opportunity to raise our profile and test our work out on a wider audience. Your generosity will help us do this by supporting the cost of rehearsals in Enniskillen and the time we will be spending in Dublin i.e. travel, accommodation and rehearsal space costs.
FUNK has been created by Artistic Director Dylan Quinn with the help of 5 wonderful dancers:
Vasiliki Stasinaki, Jenny Ecke, Namiko Gahier-Ogawa, Rita Pinheiro and Eithne Kane.
The sound track is a fantastic mix of classic and contemporary funk including George Clinton and Bootsy Collins, James Brown, Gloria Walker, Castor Pollock, Sly and the Family Stone amongst lots of others!!
The performance is presented in an open forum with the audience and the dancers mingling together. Dancers appear and disappear at a moment’s notice with the audience never really sure where the next wonder of movement is going to come from.
it will leave you feeling FUNKY!!!
Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre is a Community Interest Company (Social Enterprise) based in Enniskillen Co. Fermanagh. We are small but dedicated and work hard to develop dance across the community, education and professional sectors.
We deliver a wide range of projects and classes as well as creating professional performance work.
Dylan has been working in dance for over 16 years as a performer, educator and choreographer. DQDT was established almost 3 years ago and over that time has created a number of performances and projects for the company and other organisations across Ireland, the UK and Internationally.
All of the dancers involved in FUNK have considerable experience with various companies and choreographers, they bring a wonderful combination of experiences and styles to the performance.
We are working hard to play our part in ensuring that quality professional contemporary dance continues to be created outside of the large metropolitan areas in Ireland and in particularly in our case in the North. We would be very grateful for any support you can offer in helping us along this journey.
