Throughout human history precious metals like gold, silver and platinum have inspired, bewitched, hypnotized and for centuries alchemists have striven to transform base metals into gold.

John Scott is one of Ireland’s most radical, imaginative and internationally acclaimed choreographers, he celebrates 25 years of his company with a compelling new work Precious Metal. Featuring an international team of technically brilliant, culturally diverse dancers and artists the piece combines passion and virtuosity, humour and heartbreak.
Audiences can expect wild jumps into space, wonderful rhythms and movements driven by speed and strength, all delivered with poignancy and grace.
Irish Modern Dance Theatre is a physically and culturally diverse ensemble, ranging from virtuosic Cunningham dancers to survivors of torture in Africa. The company has also toured extensively internationally throughout Europe, to the US and Mexico.

Scott’s choreography is playful, virtuosic and passionate and has been described as “Beckett meets Monty Python”.  He plays with different performance settings, from theatres to museums to a restaurant, working with performers of different styles, ages and backgrounds.
