Rock legend The Edge, who catapulted U2 to greatness, has collaborated with his choreographer wife Morleigh Steinberg to create a striking new music and dance piece inspired by the work of the artist Louis le Brocquy, the foremost Irish painter of the 20th century.

'Cold Dream Colour', will receive its world premiere in Dublin's Pavilion Theatre on November 12, to mark the 94 birthday of the Dublin-born artist.

Steinberg married the Edge in 2002, and became fascinated by Le Brocquy's work since moving to Ireland 15 years ago.

"I asked le Brocquy if he had ever seen his paintings danced? His face lit up and he replied, 'It would be an honour'," she told the press.

The show will be presented by Steinberg herself, along with other dancers including her sister Roxanne Steinberg. Le Brocquy himself, although elderly and frail, may attend the show's opening.
