"The Dance" is an observational feature documentary by the director Pat Collins that follows the staging of MÁM from the first day of rehearsal to the opening night performance at the Dublin Theatre Festival in 2019.

Michael Keegan-Dolan is one of the most exciting choreographers working in dance and theatre today. In September 2019 he presented his new show MÁM at the Dublin Theatre Festival. The show was performed by twelve international dancers, seven musicians from the European, classical contemporary collective s t a r g a z e and the Irish traditional concertina player Cormac Begley. MÁM was the result of eight weeks of intensive work and improvisation, a unique confluence between soloist and ensemble, classical and traditional, the local and the universal.

The screening will be followed by a "T-Talk" with Michael Keegan-Dolan, among others. The talk will be moderated by the dramaturg Lucas Herrmann from the Hessian State Ballet company..
