Ion is a new ensemble piece which will get its first Irish performance at the 2018 edition of the Dublin Dance Festival.

Christos Papadopoulos is an award-winning Greek choreographer and a founding member of the dance company Leon & The Wolf. Ion is a new ensemble piece which will get its first Irish performance at the 2018 edition of the Dublin Dance Festival.

Ion is a study in movement within group. This piece imagines human bodies moving in the way gigantic murmurations of birds move through the sky or, to use the metaphor that gives the show its name, electrically charged atoms move through space.

Ten dancer move together in this hypnotising, minimal work; they are not synchronised but instead act as constant reference points to one another, producing a kind of unspoken, physical harmony.
