Dance Limerick

In 2017 Maria Nilsson Waller Dance asked Bold&Brass to run a Social Media Marketing campaign for her new show Merry.Go.Round. as part of Dublin Dance Festival 2017, including the creation of content materials, which comprised videography, photography and copywriting.

After a very successful show in Dublin Dance Festival, and a fruitful collaboration with Bold&Brass, Dance Limerick became the producer of Merry.Go.Round Irish Tour 2018 and asked Bold&Brass to be the tour and marketing manager.

Looking beyond our world into the great vast blackness of the cosmos we find five characters orbiting each other. Some are destined to converge, others to split apart. They all long for authentic connections in this otherworldly realm of celestial bodies. Caught between construction and deconstruction it is a marvel universe, strange yet familiar both beautifully simple and incredible messy.

With a touch of cinematic sci-fi, Merry.Go.Round features an eclectic soundtrack including Swedish rebel jazz band Je Suis!, NASA recordings of the solar system and iconic opera classics. Performed within a structure of scored improvisation the piece is never the same twice.

Merry.go.round is the latest and final piece in Maria Nilsson Waller’s triptych based on unclaimed territories.
