Longford native Marguerite Donlon will be staging one of her best works, Strokes Through the Tail, at Dublin’s O’Reilly Theatre this April 16 and 19 to 23.

Marguerite is currently based in Germany but is originally from Abbey- cartron, Longford.

Her work will be one of three to be performed as part of Ballet Ireland’s Bold Moves 2022, with Filipe Portugal and Christopher Bruce also showcasing works.

“Incredibly this is the first time that Donlon’s work has been presented by a professional Irish company, despite her work being on stages in the US, the Bolshoi and the London Coliseum,” said Anne Maher, Artistic Director and CEO of Ballet Ireland.

“So I am thrilled that Ballet Ireland is bringing one of her most iconic works home to Ireland, to be presented as part of this year’s Bold Moves programme of contemporary work. ”

Bold Moves 2022 will be live at the O’Reilly Theatre, Belvedere College, Dublin Saturday April 16, and Tuesday 19 – Saturday 23 at 7.30pm.

Tickets for the O’Reilly Theatre range from €25 – €32.50 (plus booking fees).
