Off Beaten Path

Off Beaten Path are a Galway based danced company who focus on creating new work in contemporary dance. The company aim to collaborate with dance artists and other creative artists from the west of Ireland. They will be performing two new pieces Codail Sámh and Shadow Play accompanied by live musician and composer Mister Ebby. 

Finders Keepers (approx. 35 min) Performed by Hylak/ Schirmer

Finders Keepers explores the idea that we see differently depending on our individual experiences, which act as a filter to create and to store memories. The choreography comes from ‘recycling’ these traces of past through movement of the body and camera.
