Inventions centres around two extraordinary women: Belfast-based Oona Doherty, one of Europe's most gifted dance artists, and 85-year-old American dance legend Valda Setterfield, of Merce Cunningham and David Gordon Pick Up Group. Inventions follows echoes of an angel falling perpetually into an abyss, in a series of solos and duets.
