Fearghus O’Conchuir | Cure – Recovering Through Others

Recorded Presentation

In 2012, Fearghus premiered Cure at the Dublin Dance Festival. The solo, inspired by what it takes to recover, was created when Fearghus commissioned six of the artists (five dance artists and one visual artist) with whom he’d recently worked to make short solos for him.

The six solos were combined into a single work that in form and content offer some insights into the interdependence of bodies, even apparently isolated ones. At a moment when our bodies may feel distanced and distant from others, Fearghus will talk about what he learned from Cure and about the ethics of interdependence it points to.
