ABOUT DUBLIN DANCE FESTIVAL: PHILIPPE SAIRE'S HOCUS POCUS

This magical children’s show explores the power of images and the sensations and experiences they conjure.

Taking the audience on a fantastical voyage, two brothers are faced with dreamlike adventures: a contortionist’s escape from a spider’s web; a journey in a damaged flying machine; and underwater encounters with fabulous aquatic creatures.

 

The unique set design allows for a playful game of appearance and disappearance. As light is painted across the stage to reveal everything it touches, the dancers’ bodies seem to emerge from a black hole before being swallowed up again. The spell cast by the story’s mysteries leaves room for the imagination, and even fosters it.
