Fearghus Ó Conchúir Choreographer and Dance Artist


Five dancers in GAA kit of blue, green and black with arms extended as if reaching to catch a ball.  In the background trees, a cloudy sky and partially seen cross bar.

Abú is a shout of support and wish for flourishing. Drawing on Gaelic games and the communities involved in them, this year’s Step Up Dance project Fearghus has made with the dancers a choreography to celebrate the commitment, care and passion it takes to make a strong team. The dance honours not only the stars on the pitch but also the people who aren’t always visible and aren’t always included. Developed with input from individual players and teams in Limerick and powered by new music from award-winning rapper, producer and songwriter MuRli, Abú brings dynamic performances from these early-career dancers onto the pitch and in to the heart.
