Orla Barry is one of the artists presented in If I Can't Dance's Programme of performances for Edition V (2013–2014).
Mountain takes as its starting point the premise that every sentence that we utter is an improvisation. Barry has worked with 57 words, an actor, a dancer and a musician to devise a work in which chance, fate, and a little witchcraft play equal roles in a performance that is never the same on any night. Mountain is performed by Derrick Devine, Marcus Lamb, and Einat Tuchman.
Mountain has been commissioned by Corpus. Mountain is produced by Playgroundfestival (STUK & Museum M), Leuven and presented by If I Can’t Dance i.c.w. The Veemtheater, Amsterdam, South London Gallery and Bozar Brussels. Mountain is financially supported by the Irish Arts Council and the European Union.
