Big Bang Festival of Rhythm

 

Commissioned by The Big Bang Festival in 2015 & 2016, this participatory dance project led and choreographed by Catherine Young in the run up to the festival each year resulted in a high energy West African dance piece engaging local dance and drumming enthusiasts in Dublin. The piece each year was performed as part of The Big Bang Festival & Improvised Music Company's "Hotter than July" event.
