Performed in the Samuel Becket Theatre, Trinity College, in an empty space all the seating had been screened off. Arriving into the venue it felt more like a dance studio. The music is already playing, a blend of soul R & B, blues from James Brown to Stevie Wonder. Six dancers one male and 5 female dance between the patrons as the arrive into the theatre, and you feel it’s more like a scene from a night club, a black box space with low levels of lighting. The dancers taking turns at first working their dance sequence in and round the audiences. ‘Funk‘ was engaging, joyful almost sensual overall you come away with a happy and content feeling having been there!
