JIG, a Trinity Irish Dance Company (TIDC) production, is a fresh take on TIDC’s internationally-renowned, alternative approach to a traditional form. In its premiere season, JIG will redefine what is possible for Irish music and dance. Centered by a live band in a unique space, JIG will immerse audiences in an authentic experience that celebrates the power of vibrations, rhythm, and movement. Offering everything you’d expect and nothing you’d imagine, the Trinity Irish Dance Company brings a cutting-edge, integrity-filled vision to the stage. Founded in 1990 and called “Sophisticated and commanding” by the Los Angeles Times and “Impossibly complex” by The New York Times, TIDC has sold out tours in Asia and distinguished venues throughout North America, including Washington’s Kennedy Center, NYC’s Joyce Theater, and LA’s Royce Hall. A dance legacy that is rooted in tradition, yet forward-looking and ever evolving, TIDC celebrates Founding Artistic Director Mark Howard’s unique vision to fuse vibrant Irish traditions with ever-evolving American innovation, dazzling with hard-driving percussive power and aerial grace while sending a clear message of female empowerment. “A cool vibe… It stretches the limits of what Irish dance can do aesthetically and rhythmically” — Chicago Tribune
