The Sokalo Remix Project is a traditional dance and music production with a difference. This high energy show is the result of a transatlantic collaboration between Montreal-based dance company [ZØGMA] and four professional artists from the Irish traditional performing arts Edwina Guckian, Laoise Kelly, Cáitlin Nic Gabhann and Liam O Scanláin. Liam is currently Dance Irelands Associate Artist in Residence. The members of [ZØGMA] are exceptional performers and have performed extensively on the international stage since 2001 showcasing Quebec’s folklore, merging dance, music and song into powerful rhythmic works. This collaboration has resulted in an enthralling, highly energetic production, at the crossroads of modernity and tradition, highlighting the proximity of Irish and Quebecois traditional cultures.
“The dance collaboration introduced me to an entirely new approach to folk dance, with one foot tapping in the past and the other foot stepping into the future, it was a fascinating dance dialogue which enriched my understanding of both traditions.” - Tristan Rosenstock, Presenter @Imeall, TG4
