A collaboration between Guillaume Cousson and Ronan McLoughlin, ROGU 2.0 is a choreographic work mixing body movement, illusion and light manipulation.
Guillaume and Ronan have grown individually as renowned international performers with a very similar set of skills, but used in different ways and constantly influencing each other. They complement each other, speaking the languages of body movement and object manipulation to convey a story.
The aim of this project is to create a new genre of circus performance using technology that creates light effects synchronised with body illusion techniques.
This new work will be presented in 2019 at Circus festivals around the world. The team will show the fruit of their work in a free public showing on Friday, October 12th at 1pm.
This Friday is Culture Night, and there will be a talk with Pat Kiernan, Artistic Director of Corcadorca and TDC, at 8pm. Pat will be talking about the background to the TDC and Corcadorca’s relationship with Triskel Arts Centre. Join us!
