For this solo dance film commission, Kristyn Fontanella draws from her knowledge of traditional dance to make new rhythmical patterns and shapes inspired by the fall of rain on her body and the South Galway landscape. Listening to the raindrops, to the wind. Listening to what is happening around to hear what is happening within. Finding new movement patterns from playing in puddles where raindrops fell.
Having toured world-wide with Riverdance, Lord of the Dance and Gaelforce Dance, Kristyn is now based in County Galway, choreographing work which sits between the traditional and the contemporary.
