About NZFOTA - Mam (TSB Arena)

Mám 1: Mountain pass. Mám 2: Yoke. Faoi mhám an pheaca, under the yoke of sin. 2. Lit: Obligation, duty, function. Mám 3: Handful. ~ mhilseán, of sweets. Scaipeann  ina mhámanna é, he throws it away in handfuls.  

Surrender yourself to “90 minutes of ritualised ecstasy” (The Irish Times) as Michael Keegan-Dolan and Teaċ Daṁsa return to the Festival with a stunning new work.   

“Alternately playful and provocative, funny and frightening, MÁM is a stirring, sensuous showcase of the emotional power of the physical form” (The Irish Times). Bringing together virtuoso Irish traditional concertina player Cormac Begley, the European classical, contemporary collective, s t a r g a z e and 12 international dancers from the Teaċ Daṁsa company, MÁM “overflows with depth and soul ... a heavenly, glorious, wildly whirling dervish” (The Arts Review). 

Michael has a strong connection with this Festival, starting in 2008, with his productions of Giselle, Rian (2014) and Swan Lake/Loch na HeAla (2018).  In 2019 he got closer, with a six-week residency, Made in Wellington where Michael and his artistic collaborators began the creation of MÁM.  

There was not a single seat left unsold at the recent World Premiere season at Dublin Theatre Festival, so get your tickets quick for this strictly limited run.   

Co-produced by New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Teaċ Daṁsa, Sadler’s Wells, London, Dublin Theatre Festival.
