“Blue Ghost is captivating from beginning to end. They seemed to be ephemeral creatures, rather than human beings, that danced purely for the sake of dancing.” Maggie Watson, Dancin’ Oxford
Luz & Mannion Dance Company draw our attention to the unexpected beauty and rhythm harboured in the insect world in a visual, dynamic and electric flamenco show which premiered in the UK in March 2023. Inspired by the Blue Ghost Firefly & the importance of insect conservation this is a nostalgic celebration that reminds us of our interconnectedness, embraces our need for transformation & shows us that even the smallest creatures have an important part to play.
Flamenco dance & music meet live electronic music by Nick Rothwell, Cassiel in this innovative, multidisciplinary project.
Luz & Mannion Dance is collaborating with leading Insect Conservation charity Buglife UK.
Alongside theatre performances Luz & Mannion also present Blue Ghost Sensory Experiences for SEN Schools and Groups as well as collaborating with a variety of schools and organization on outreach activities. More info: www.luzmanniondance.com/blue-ghost | email@example.com
“This is an intimate study of the two tiny creatures, performed by two floating and sinuous flamenco women… If Moira Shearer could have removed her red pointe shoes and put on the heels and taps of flamenco shoes, she would have danced it like this.” Tracey Holmes, Minerva Theatre
