I am here

‘I am here’ was created by two people, one in Enniskillen N. Ireland the other in Bremen Germany. The piece was created over a series of creative zoom sessions using the period of restricted movement in early 2020. The short film explores the desire to be close and connect whilst being distant and disconnected.

 More about Fulcrum 


Dylan Quinn Dance Theatre presents their highly acclaimed production Fulcrum in a unique setting on the Border in Ireland. The intricate and tender duet was presented on an external stage straddling the border between the counties of Fermanagh and Leitrim and over the County River.


Presented at sunset and sunrise. A bus transported audience members from the village of Kiltyclogher to the isolated performance location. The performance provided a unique opportunity to reflect and consider the impacts of borders, boundaries and in particular the local context in Ireland.


Fulcrum was created via a collaboration between dancer/choreographer Dylan Quinn, dancer Jenny Ecke and composer/singer Andy Garbi, Fulcrum has been inspired by the themes and the context of Samuel Beckett’s play ‘Catastrophe’ and its relationship to Vaclav Havel. 


Fulcrum was originally presented as part of the Happy Days International Festival on 2014 in Enniskillen and has successfully toured Ireland, France and Germanyin subsequent years.


Fulcrum explores the complexity of dependency, control and shifting power balances in a macro context whilst also demonstrating how this affects the micro world we live in. It seeks to touch on the fragile balance of control as well as the insidious nature of power.


Physically and audibly, the piece focuses on honing and concentrating movement and sound to reflect the issues and context, whilst challenging the artists to be truthful and creative.
