Dance Limerick welcome renowned choreographer John Scott back to Limerick for his latest production Magnetic.

John Scott, director of the Irish Modern Dance Theatre, spent time with the Limerick dance support organisation - which rose out of the ashes of the defunct Daghdha Dance Company - last year, working with UL MA Students in Contemporary Dance Performance.

Now, he returns to the city with his company to perform a brand new piece of dance theatre, Magnetic, in the former Daghdha Space at St John’s Church, where Dance Limerick are based.

Featuring five dancers who have performed in everything from Broadway musicals to Merce Cunningham Dance Company, Magnetic has been described as an “explosive and joyous dance theatre work where each dancer pushes to achieve new levels of perfection: physical, technical and spiritual”.

“Supporting dance and dancers in Limerick and beyond is central to what we do,” explained Dance Limerick director Jenny Traynor.

“We were delighted to have John Scott working in the space last year and are excited to see this new work. Knowing the passion John always puts into his work we are sure this will be an exciting and thrilling performance”.

Magnetic takes place at 7:30pm on Thursday April 3 in the Daghdha Space, John’s Square. Tickets are €12/10 and can be purchased from www.dancelimerick.ie or by contacting 061 467813.
