TearAway – Suzon Gheur (45 mins)
Imagine a few boxes dispatched on the stage – from which you’ll have to think out of. Imagine a trapeze that comes to life, at times as a friend, at others as an enemy. One quest: to deconstruct the stereotypes conveyed by the aerial world, such as thinness, flexibility, elegance and sensuality.
Suzon jumps out of the frame – completely and literally. On the trapeze, she combines breakdance, tradition and zero gravity in an unusual and unprecedented manner.

Martyr – Kathleen Doherty (40 mins)
Female-driven, emotionally charged, visually captivating. Martry is a direct and threatening view of the human psyche and the power that religious fervor can hold.
From the raw realness of the female form, bound and trapped in a repetitive loop, to the chaotic movements of a soul driven mad. Heavily littered with esoteric and occult symbolism.
Martyr is a work by Alexandre Duarte and Kathleen Doherty. It is multi-disciplinary, blending dance, physical theatre, performance art and the aerial arts.
Combining innovative atmosphereic design with ropes, aerial equipment, intense soundscape, moveable lights, and a chair. We invite you to enter what may be experienced as a nightmare that hints at current events and darker political agendas.
This show is part of Island Connect, a Creative Europe funded project through Irish Aerial Creation Centre, co-funded by Arts Council Ireland and Limerick City & County Council.
