Darrah Carr Dance - James Shipp's Nós Novo


Darrah Carr Dance returns to the Irish Arts Center stage with the world premiere of bold new choreography set to the remarkable sounds of James Shipp's Nós Novo - a fusion of Irish, Brazilian, and Jazz stylings. Together, these two highly innovative groups present a kaleidoscopic view of Irish dance and music that pushes the boundaries of these traditional forms. Additional highlights of the season include: a ModERIN Masterclass with the company; a post-show discussion with Artistic Director Darrah Carr and bandleader James Shipp; and a specially priced Family Show.

At first glance, Irish and modern dance seem worlds apart. Irish dancers, taught to maintain an upright posture and stick-straight arms, rarely find themselves practicingcontractions and tilts. However, if you catch Darrah Carr Dance's upcoming NYC season,you might see Irish dancers doing just that!

Carr bridges the gap between the two genres with her signature "ModERIN" style. Made up of dancers with a diverse array of backgrounds, the company performs everything from edgy ModERIN fusion pieces to  traditional Irish duets.
