Stopgap Dance Company has announced not one but two premieres of its new production, Lived Fiction, in 2024.

Lived Fiction is the manifestation of Stopgap’s 20-year history, a timely intervention that can shape the future of contemporary dance. The sensual choreography of Lived Fiction is rendered anew with evocative audio description, exquisite projection art and captioning. The internationally revered company invites audiences to experience dance from multiple perspectives and share in a future that is rich with the enterprise, potential and power of diversity.

Expect masterful performances from Deaf, Disabled, neurodivergent and non-disabled creatives in the dance work that is deep with compassion for the human condition.

Stopgap wants the performers and the audience to gain a shared experience of an inclusive world and revel in the joy of different people cohabiting the theatre space. Lived Fiction aims to do this through intertwining audio description, captioning and projection art with world-class choreography, within the context of a relaxed performance.

The world premiere of Lived Fiction will be presented 11 – 12 April at Project Arts Centre, Dublin, followed by the UK premiere on 14 May at Brighton Festival. For tickets and more information, click here.
