ABOUT DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL: JUNK ENSEMBLE'S DOLORES

Inspired by Vladimir Nabokov’s poetic and disturbing novel Lolita, Dolores is a powerful, uncompromising work which offers a new take on the story.

Told from the perspective of the once-silenced girl, Dolores gives voice to three distinct aspects of the character: the neglected and traumatised child, the candy-fed girl filled with American hopes and dreams, and the enraged woman full of fire and revenge.
Performed by an acclaimed cast of Irish and international performers, including actor Mikel Murfi and performance artist Amanda Coogan, this piece responds to Nabokov’s evocative text to expose the unsettling abuse and tragedy of a young girl.
Junk Ensemble creates an immersive experience as they lead the audience through the intricately designed rooms of the performance space.
