At Dance Limerick this January, catch the Live Premiere of the highly acclaimed dyad by Justine Doswell. Having been presented at Dublin Dance Festival in 2021 in the form of a performance film to rave reviews, we are delighted to bring you the first ever live performance of dyad.

The Irish Times ★★★★

The Arts Review ★★★★

A meditation on archetype and architecture, dyad reflects on the qualities of a woman whose faith and body served as a connection between the human and the divine: Mary / Maryam. A woman chosen among all women, revered in both Christianity and Islam.

A link across time, culture and creed.

Explored through the liquid virtuoso of dance artists Salma Ataya and Justine Cooper, dyad delves into the complex nature of interconnection, twinned concepts and shared ideals. Their presence unites with sculptural design, intricate lighting and evocative cello, to foreground the universality of the body as a sacred vessel and an extraordinary construction.

A contrapuntal embodiment, reflecting on the essence of a sacred feminine archetype, a paradigm of purity and piety, aspects of which have influenced and dictated women’s lives and roles in the structure of societies over many centuries.
