ModERIN: a unique blend of traditional Irish step and contemporary modern dance comes to North Adams when Darrah Carr Dance takes the stage. The cast of champion Irish step dancers combines powerful percussive footwork with athletic partnering to create high-energy, rhythmically based work that is enjoyed by a broad audience. The Village Voice calls them “Vibrant and dazzling.”
"Ms. Carr’s immensely likable and skillful dancers moved through all eight works with a space-gobbling buoyancy and openness" -- The New York Times
