Princesses Can Be Pirates

Uillinn: West Cork Arts Centre is delighted to offer West Cork Primary Schools the opportunity to engage with our Contemporary Dance Programme with an invitation to Princesses Can Be Pirates by Mónica Muñoz Marín at Skibbereen Town Hall on Thursday 4 April at 11.00 am.

Princesses Can Be Pirates is a dance performance specially created for school audiences. The work takes children on an adventure to explore dance and to playfully question what is often considered “typical” or “normal” behaviour for girls and for boys, where play is everything and everywhere.
Brave or foolhardy, the two extraordinary dancers join forces to explore unknown territories, swapping  toys, costumes and activities in a series of lively escapades and defying stereotypes to break the norm.
The world has much to offer and this duet celebrates it in a dynamic performance.

“A winner for all audiences!... a playful, warm and very enjoyable dance piece...It is a very good introduction to children to a dance performance and for children who have never seen a live dance production before.”
