Kira bennett will use traditional Irish dance choreography and modern beats, to create a performance all of her own. All dances are improvised, in a traditional style, to create a unique rhythmic balance between music and performer.
The music is composed by my friend Julian McCarthy, I thought about what the music felt like whilst dancing to it and imagined myself running through the woods, lost. Similar to how so many of us can feel lost in our day to day lives.

The Oneiroscopist (known to society as Jacob Sexsmith) got into music at an early age, but only started playing it in the 4th grade when his friend taught him to play the first riff of “Smoke on the water” on guitar. He was hooked from then on. In the 6th grade he learned to play drums, which really set off his creative drive and passion for music. He started producing electronic music at age 14. His music has been described as “Fluid, Trippy, Avante-garde, Instrumental Basement Hip-Hop”. For anyone who is wondering, the pseudonym means “interpreter of dreams”.
