Aoife Courtney: Flock
Presented by Ready Fire Aim
“Flock is going to be a joy to behold. It’s a delightful surprise in the most unexpected place. Keep your eyes peeled.”
– Festival Director.
The meadows come alive in a flurry of choreography inspired by the natural world. Flock takes its cue from the extraordinary sight of birds flocking and from the playful games of childhood. Flock is a short piece for forty dancers created to make you look again at the beauty of Castletown’s swaying meadowlands.
Meadow @ 5.30 & 6.30 Every Day.
