One Last Dance | An Chéad Damhsa
Following the Brexit vote, artist Rita Marcalo is leaving.
One Last Dance is Rita’s final love letter to the UK – a two-month perambulating dance between Guildford (where she lived when she first arrived here in 1994) and Cloughjordan (the Irish village she’s moving to).
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, and the whole work will be captured in a film.
One Last Dance – An Chéad Damhsa is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
