Dance  Oona Doherty came to international attention with Hard to be Soft – A Belfast Prayer and Hope Hunt, for which she won the Silver Lion at the 2021 Dance Biennale in Venice. These socially critical pieces by the young choreographer from Belfast place a focus on social inequalities, class and gender roles. Here she refers back to a language of movement taken from dance and theatre which is as raw as it is poetic. In Navy Blue she works though a wide range of associations – ranging from the colour itself through pain and loneliness and blue-collar figures as symbols of the working class to reflections on the structural exploitation of the workforce and of nature in general.
