Sandy Silva @ Kilkenny Arts Festival 2019

Friday, 16 August 2019, 6.00pm

Canadian dancer Sandy Silva is a pioneer of ‘body percussion’, an expressive dance style that uses the whole body to weave tapestries of sound, from the whisper of a shoe on a floor to blazingly fast tap rhythms. Drawing on a breathtaking range of traditional dance forms, from Cape Breton to the Appalachian mountains, Silva works at the crossroads of movement and sound, forging a style both totally unique and utterly compelling.

This show combines stunning short films from the Migration Dance Project – Silva’s award-winning exploration of migrant experiences – with exhilarating live performance, accompanied by guitarist Steve Cooney.
