"junk ensemble have guts and ingenuity." - The Irish Times

junk ensemble is a multi-award-winning company, creating bold productions that stretch the boundaries of dance theatre, and challenge the relationship between audience and performer.

Exploring blindness and invisibility, Dusk Ahead shows the murky fading light of dusk - that hour between dog and wolf, from domestic and wild - when it is difficult to discern what is real from what is imagined. With a high-caliber cast of international and Irish performers who also act as the band, playing live music throughout the piece, Dusk Ahead is a captivating work from one of Ireland’s most dynamic dance companies.

Dusk Ahead was originally commissioned and co-produced by Kilkenny Arts Festival and the Project Arts Centre. Junk Ensemble are part of Project Catalysts, an initiative of Project Arts Centre.
