DOCNITE is the first full length programme of choreographer Oona Doherty’s original work consisting of three episodes exploring metaphysical states. A hunt for truth and hope with the flesh of the body.
From a thumping Leather Jacket into a connected space, truth spitting, three flesh rise up from the deepest darkest velvety black, to Hope Hunt out of the concrete. Out of the memories of the nervous system, into the light.
Oona Doherty is a dance artist based in Bangor, Co.Down, performing and creating internationally since 2010. Previous collaborations include TRASH Dance (Netherlands), Abattoir Fermé (Belgium), and Emma Martin (Ireland).Oona’s work has been recently performed at festivals around Europe including Ravnedans Festival Norway, and the Dublin Dance Festival.
