Dublin Dance Festival’s 2024 Edition presents a world of dance from 14th – 25th May, showcasing thrilling, ground-breaking artistic voices that bring diverse identities, beliefs, histories, and perspectives. Dance that takes a stand, ditches convention and demands to be heard. It’s time to DANCE OUT LOUD.

The Abbey Theatre will be home to three powerful productions in the 2024 Edition.

Following sold-out and critically acclaimed performances throughout Europe, Portuguese choreographer Marco da Silva Ferreira comes to Ireland for the first time to present his hugely successful new production CARCAÇA.

In this dynamic, joyful choreography, ten performers take street dance, hip hop battles, and club culture as their base to dismantle and then reclaim traditional European folk dances that have been frozen in time. As tradition and contemporary collide, they create a rebellious, colourful and vibrant exploration of identity.

Tues 21 – Wed 22 May, 7:30pm. Tickets €15 – €42. BOOK NOW

Winner of the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production in 2019, Botis Seva’s highly acclaimed BLKDOG is a beautifully brutal commentary on how the youth of today navigate a world not built for them. In this emotionally charged performance fuelled by the potent physicality of hip hop, BLKDOG questions how we can fight through our vices to find a sense of peace.

Fri 17 – Sat 18 May, 7:30pm. Tickets€15 – €42. BOOK NOW

Dublin Dance Festival is delighted to present acclaimed Irish choreographer, Emma Martin for the first time at the Abbey Theatre. A sweaty love letter to dance in all its forms, Night Dances is an exhilarating celebration of dance culture – from clubs to competitions to ceremonies. Performed to pounding beats with atmospheric lighting, it unleashes the exhilaration of getting lost in your own rhythm where nothing else matters, just the sweat and the groove.
