Event Details

ONE LAST DANCE – AN CHÉAD DAMHSA is a perambulating dance between Guildford (where Rita lived when she arrived in the UK in 1994) and Cloughjordan (the rural Irish village to which, post-Brexit, she is moving).

As she dances across the UK she will stay with other EU citizens, who will choreograph, walk and dance part of the way with her. Each performance of One Last Dance will feature all the sections created up to that point (including one at Yorkshire Dance on Friday 5 October), and this film captures the work in its entirety.

As she goes, Rita will perform ever-developing versions of One Last Dance at festivals and venues which have been part of her work in the UK over the past 24 years.

She will enter the island of Ireland via Northern Ireland, when the work will shift into its next stage: An Chéad Damhsa (in English, My First Dance). When she reaches Cloughjordan, Rita will finally perform the entire accumulated choreography.

The entire 2-month long perambulating dance will be captured in a documentary film.
