Oona Doherty


About Oona Doherty’s Navy Blue

A dark night descends and a group of 12 dancers generate a sense of dread, trapped within a destructive algorithm. Doherty uses movement, music and colour to reflect pain and loneliness, and the struggles and exploitation of working-class people. Often angry and defiant, Doherty and her dancers ultimately search for wider communal healing and redemption. Featuring music from Sergeï Rachmaninoff and Jamie xx this compelling new production considers where we have been and where we are heading, as it urgently calls for societal change.
