This event will also include a screening of “Is there balm in Gilead?” commissioned by IMDT’s Dancer from the Dance Festival of Irish Choreography 2021, which premiered at the Irish Film Institute in July.
Loss, grief, despair, and a collective call for hope and transformation, “Is there balm in Gilead?” is a short dance film set in the west of Ireland that takes inspiration from ethnocultural myths and writings centred on the raven. Featuring iconic singer-songwriter/poet Leonard Cohen’s Dance Me to the End of Love in a new recording sung by one of Ireland’s greatest jazz and blues singers, Mary Coughlan, the film reflects on the paradoxical nature of existence and our longing for redemption.
