In 2018, the Goethe-Institut Irland re-opened following extensive refurbishment by Henchion Reuter Architects and Shaffrey Architects. To mark the reopening, the Goethe-Institut Irland commissioned  Liz Roche Company to create a magnificent new site-specific dance piece.

Due to overwhelming demand Liz Roche Company and the Goethe-Institut Irland are remounting "Näher... closer, nearer, sooner" on 15, 16 and 17 February 2019. After a sold out run with rave reviews at Dublin Fringe Festival 2018 the piece is being shown again for these final performances.

Tickets are available here.

Created by leading Irish choreographer Liz Roche the piece is written and co-devised by prolific Irish actor and playwright, Shane O’Reilly with sound design by Roy Carroll and costumes by Catherine Fay. An exceptional cast of dancers take audiences on a thrilling dance odyssey of emotion and movement in Liz Roche Company's latest ambitious work, continuing to forge new territory in dance and audience experience.

Within these new and old walls at Goethe-Institut Irland are layers of stories and memories. This not-to-be-missed dance encounter brings up all of the emotions and movements that bring us closer, encouraging us to share in an intimate living room play and to live the best moment of your lives. Cast: Finola Cronin, Henry Montes, Anne-Laure Dogot, Kévin Coquelard & Senior Dancers from Dublin Youth Dance Company.

Tickets are available here.
