"Dialogue" ( 对话 ) A dialogued choreography between an Irish and a Chinese.

Fearghus Ó Conchuir (the surname is that known Irish "O'Connor" but in different pronunciation) is an Irish (of course) dancer and choreographer who comes regularly to China to participate in dance exchanges with Chinese artists. Fearghus participated in a performance festival in Dashanzi 798 in 2007, and you can see part of their participation in a video of my post (on this Blog) on May 16th, 2008

Fearghus told me he had spent over two years doing an artistic dialogue, dancing, with Xiao Ke, his chinese partner in this choreography. This dialogue had its first public show in Dublin in July 2008, but the process of intercommunication between them did not end there. A month ago the Irish choreographer met again with her Chinese counterpart for a further work in this very personal dialogue and show it once again to the public. Fearghus Ó Conchúir (you can pronounce also write "O'Conchuir") got an interesting Blog, if you want to take a look... :

"Dialogue" or "对话" (duìhuá) was performed on June 1st, 2009 at Penghao Theatre in Beijing.
