'Launch Day' is a celebration of the working class and shipbuilding in all its industrial glory.
Inspired by the paintings of artist Alexander Millar, Kelly-Abbott Dance Theatre and Drogheda born choreographer Kristin Kelly-Abbott craft an exciting and powerful movement, combined with an enchanting soundtrack featuring music by Mark Knopfler and Drogheda based composer Breifne Holohan. Bringing to life Millar’s iconic characters - the 'Gadgies' – and British shipyard workers, Launch Day will have its Irish premiere in Droichead. Co-commissioned by Dance City and Queen's Hall Hexham.
