MERLIN is a dance-theatre quintet with a cast of five outstanding international performers. An emotional, engaging and physical dance work. Jazmin Chiodi and Alexandre Iseli, in collaboration with a group of artists, present a rigorously structured group piece, chiseled choreography colliding with intuitive impulse: a mix of individual urge, group synchronicity, chaos, and order. MERLIN aims to merge animalism and finesse, in the choreography as much as in the movement vocabulary.
Where: Project Arts Centre, 39 East Essex Street, Temple Bar, Dublin
How much: €14 – €16
The Tolka Hot Club is a hot swing quartet formed by the banks of the river Tolka on Dublin’s north side, late in 2014. The group brings a body of music from the Roaring ’20s and ’30s, from both sides of the Atlantic right into the twenty-first century, with a few modern surprises! All this is delivered with the lush yet percussive ambiance that only strings can provide in the hypnotic Gypsy jazz style.
Where: Arthur’s Blues & Jazz Club, 28 Thomas Street, Dublin
When: 9pm to 11pm
