$25 / $20

Kieran Jordan Dance will present an evening of choreography celebrating the simplicity and precious “little gifts” of Irish dance steps and tunes. In a genre often dominated by large-scale, pyrotechnic shows, this work will highlight the immediacy and intimacy of solo Irish dance footwork with live, acoustic music, as well as choreographed duos, trios, and small ensemble works that draw from 10 years of the company’s work. Audiences are invited to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day season by experiencing up-close the energy, artistry, and interconnectedness of Irish dance and music, from a cast of noteworthy Boston-area performers.

This performance is supported by Green Street Studios’ company-in-residence program.

Featuring Kieran Jordan Dance company: Amanda Carey, Samantha Jones, Kieran Jordan, Kristen Kelly, Rebecca McGowan, Lauren Milord, Jackie O’Riley, and Hannah Pelton

Special guest performances by the children of O’Riley Irish Dance

Live music by the Vox Hunters (Armand Aromin and Benedict Gagliardi) with John Coyne

Set designs and art exhibit by Vincent Crotty

Lighting design by Kim Holman

Whether performing in concerts, festivals, or theater settings, the company’s work is celebrated for its lyricism, eye-catching footwork, rhythmic energy, and natural embodied movement.
