At a reception held last Wednesday, Consul General of Ireland Noel Kilkenny and Ms. Hanora O'Dea Kilkenny honored The Irish Repertory Theatre (Charlotte Moore, Artistic Director; Ciaran O'Reilly,
Producing Director) and welcomed the Ériu Dance Company to New York City for its American premiere of the new Irish dance production NOCTU, running at Irish Rep through October 2.

Choreographed and directed by Riverdance Principal Dancer Breandan de Gallai, NOCTU is a new departure for the Irish dance show genre. It pushes the boundaries of the Irish dance aesthetic and explores new expression possibilities. This performance allows the audience to get
under the skin of those who perform in the dance world and allows us a glimpse of what matters to them.

The American premiere of NOCTU stars the Eiru Dance Company - an international cast of world-class Irish step dancers from Ireland, Scotland, England, Australia, Canada and Hungary: Jack Anderson, Peta Anderson, Ellen Bonner, Orlagh Carty, Joseph Comerford, Niamh Darcy, Gyula Glaser, James Greenan, Kyla Marsh, Kienan Melino, Megan McElhatton, Ashlene McFadden, Nick O'Connell, Katrina O'Donnell, Aislinn Ryan, and Callum Spencer.

Performances of NOCTÚ run September 6-October 2 at The Irish Repertory Theatre (132 West 22nd Street, between 6th and 7th Avenues): Tuesday-Saturday at 8pm; plus 3pm matinees on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday (with the following exceptions: no performance September 11; 7pm opening on September 12). Tickets are $55 and $65, and are available by calling 212-727-2737 or online at www.irishrep.org.
