Description

Lady Magma is a celebration of female strength, creeping out of a 1970’s burnt orange aesthetic.

Part of the Belfast International Art Festival

A huge circular Persian rug fills the stage; a carpet unique in design, rhythm, tone and style, like a dance, and infused with the culture and beliefs of those who have woven them. The dancers throb, this is the birth of a cult before our eyes. This dance is a ritual, dedicated to desire, to sexual energy, to love and to madness.

Through the dance the women connect, and grow stronger, sharing this power and energy with audiences An ode to femininity, performed by a stunning ensemble of international contemporary female dancers.

Lady Magma has the possibility to be shocking, pleasurable and above all needed, in light of the historical oppression of women and sexuality across the island of Ireland and indeed internationally.

Oona Doherty has wowed festival audiences over the past few years. From BIAF Artist in Residence 2016, developing Hope Hunt and the Ascension into Lazarus, to the award-winning Hard to be Soft – A Belfast Prayer (2017), it's certain that Lady Magma is set to be a stunning tour de force performance to close this year’s festival.

Director/Choreographer – Oona Doherty

Post Show Talk: Thursday 31 Octber with Oona Doherty and cast.
