MICHAEL KEEGAN-DOLAN’S SWAN LAKE

Matthew Bourne, with his aggressive male swans and nightclub scenes, took Swan Lake in one direction. Michael Keegan-Dolan’s short, Tchaikovsky-free take—LOCH NA HEALA (SWAN LAKE)—goes somewhere else altogether. Inspired by a number of folktales, including “The Children of Lir,” and updated to present-day Ireland, Keegan-Dolan gives us predatory priests, suicidal depressives, and Mikel Murfi as a goat, leading up to an exhilarating, shambolic climax.

This dance-theater-performance art hybrid—performed by Keegan-Dolan’s company, Teaċ Daṁsa, and co-presented by UCLA’s Center for the Art of Performance and the Ford Theatres—will be at Royce Hall for one night only. The trio Slow Moving Clouds will perform their score onstage.

To celebrate the installation of HERE COMES THE SUN—her new work for the Guggenheim rotunda—join Pia Camil in conversation with Pablo León de la Barra for a discussion of her practice, with a reception to follow.

HERE COMES THE SUN, a crowdsourced fabric sculpture, “extends the artist’s engagement with collaboration, the impact of consumer culture, contemporary trade routes, and the legacies of modernism.”*
