The first of two events in honour of WB Yeats’ 150th birthday – and inspired by his famous lines, ‘That he follow with desire/Bodies that can never tire’ Bodies That Can Never Tire: The Whole City Must Dance – the Whole City Must Bid! is an all-day dance marathon taking place on Henry Street, one of Dublin’s major shopping streets.
Part of Dublin’s bid to be European Capital of Culture 2020, this event extends an invitation to Dublin’s dancers to mix contemporary, hip-hop, ballet, tap, jazz (and everything in between) in an exuberant celebration of movement, creativity and dance. All dance groups, amateur or professional, in any form, are welcome. Groups wishing to participate should contact dance@Dublin2020.ie.
Bodies That Can Never Tire: The Whole City Must Dance – the Whole City Must Bid! is a collaboration between Dublin2020, International Literature Festival Dublin and Dublin Dance Festival.Free Event – all donations and fundraising proceeds go to Temple Street Children’s Hospital.
