Arcane Collective: Cold Dream Colour

Featuring an original score by The Edge and Paul Chavez

“Spellbinding...It’s nice to see a bit of rock-star oomph being injected into the world of contemporary dance.” Irish Independent

The Sharon Disney Lund Dance Series

Leading Los Angeles choreographer Oguri collaborates with Dublin-based choreographers Morleigh Steinberg and Liz Roche in this acclaimed international co-production featuring a beautifully haunting musical score by U2 guitarist The Edge and Paul Chavez of Feltlike. Cold Dream Colour is a precise and hypnotic dance theater work, inspired by the rich and ethereal work of the late Irish artist Louis le Brocquy, described as “the foremost Irish painter of the 20th century” by the Irish Times. The distinctive guitar techniques of The Edge set an urgent yet subtly textured tone for the work, which merges a gestural movement style that hints at a poetic narrative with an intensely seductive movement vocabulary delivered with mesmerizing concentration and kinetic dexterity. The powerful dance is concerned less with animating figures and physical shapes in le Brocquy’s mysterious paintings than with finding the energies and meanings in them.
