9.00PM, 15 & 16 MAY
What does it take to recover? What happens after collapse? Cure is about overcoming difficulties, about what's needed to survive and about the journey in hope as much as the arrival. It invites us to look for the way ahead, and assembles the wisdom and creativity of others in order to take the next steps. Cure is a new solo for Fearghus Ó Conchúir, choreographed by six artists and performers with whom he's worked in recent years.

8.00PM, 18, 20 & 21 May; 6.00PM 19 MAY
Iconic dancer Jean Butler returns to Dublin Dance Festival with her latest work. In this new solo Butler reconnects with her considerable history and training in Irish Step Dance. A personal and expressive work, hurry offers a resolution to the task of balancing her past and present dancing sensibilities.

7.00PM, 21 & 22 MAY
Welcome to the world of Peggy & Peggy. Guessing games, intriguing situations and a healthy dose of irony are served up in this road movie-inspired performance. Egg Charade confronts some of the difficulties women can face when deciding whether to have a baby. Intimate and revealing, this duet combines lightness and intense physical effort with a wry sense of humour.

8.00PM, 24 & 26 MAY
Lake and McGowan are two of Australia's rising stars - Lake emerging from Melbourne's Chunky Move and Lucy Guerin Inc., McGowan from Australian Dance Theatre and Sydney Dance Company. Dual is a puzzle that fuses jagged yet slippery pieces. Distinct and unrelated, two solos are interlocked to create an arresting duet, while Skeleton discovers the hidden stories of pop-cultural icons, from the high heel to the BMX.

Equipped with little torches, children are guided by a dancing bug around a camping scene from dawn 'til dusk. They explore a beanbag hillside crawling with animated ladybirds, follow pebbles to cinematic tents to reach a smouldering 'campfire', and can even use switches to control the weather and make a storm!
