Quarter Block Party climbs Cork’s historic spine to Firkin
Crane, for a weekend of new dance.
Coming from Oakland, California, Snake Talk is a zany,
disquieting, feminist evening length performance
spectacle that navigates interspecies intimacy, feminine
voraciousness and wild unfettered dancing. A thirdwave feminist proposal nestled within an extreme and
harnesses the somewhat terrifying aesthetic of the
“zany” to confront, consume and transmute patriarchal
and neoliberalist frameworks. Created and performed by
collaborative choreographic team Maryanna Lachman,
Mara Madrona and Abby Crain.
Biography, place, time and repetition feature in Tryptich,
born or based in Cork. Each work exhibits its own unique
style of composition, humour and playfulness, and we see
dancing, singing, silence and food for thought. It won’t be
what you expect.
