April is about to blos­som with per­for­mances all over the coun­try, but es­pe­cially in the cap­i­tal, where the now-an­nual in­ter­na­tional Dublin Dance Fes­ti­val (DDF) sets sail with panache on April 17th. William Forsythe, the mod­ern ma­gi­cian of con­tem­po­rary dance, and his com­pany will be at the Abbey for three days with a po­lit­i­cally and phys­i­cally charged work, Three At­mo­spheric Stud­ies. The French com­pany Bal­let Preljo­caj (pic­tured) will present Empty Moves, I and II, a work by An­gelin Preljo­caj. And for the fol­low­ing three weeks, dance will be spring­ing forth, from new and old Euro­pean tra­di­tions (among them, Slove­nia, Ro­ma­nia, France, Ire­land and Den­mark) as well as transat­lantic im­ports in­clud­ing Tere O’Con­nor’s New York com­pany. There will danc­ing on the street, in the Ark, on the box, in the gym and on the stage around the city! Too many rare op­por­tu­ni­ties, so start fill­ing the dance card now.
