In this hourlong performance, two artforms unite in an unconstrained bombastic poem – at once classical and hardcore, noble and reckless. It manifests the contagious and vital energy that is revealed through the union of dance and music, both having been created for one another.

Hamilton’s music for Dancehall will be performed by a trio from Ireland’s inimitable Crash Ensemble.

Performances will take place at the Samuel Beckett Theatre in Trinity College, Dublin, from Thursday 8 October to Sunday 11 October.
