“[Choreographer John Scott’s IMDT] has the potential to yield the most interesting and original developments in European Dance.”
– Mike Dixon, Dance Europe
Based in Dublin and renowned for its assertive and original style, IMDT collaborates with two maverick choreographers to create an arresting double-bill. Together with Bessie Award-winning Brooklyn-based choreographer Chris Yon, they create the anarchic and quirky RrrrrrrKILLKILLKILL . . . to infinity (MAKE IT LOOK REAL) and explore a mutual fascination with randomness and meaningful
‘It is better to . . . ‘ is their collaboration with celebrated German choreographer Thomas Lehman. They respond to the human struggle to make things better – from better sex and better politics to being a better person or telling a better joke. Commissioned by IMDT for ESB Dublin Fringe Festival 2004, it was nominated for both “Best Production” and “Sexiest Show.”
