Even just listening to it is so great. Great background noise as well as such a great movie to watch. Being a drummer, I appreciate the real beats involved with the music. I love the story, costumes, staging, drama, music, and of course the dancing. I recommend this to everyone. I have shown this movie to all of my friends and family. Was this review helpful to you? The artists and producers talk candidly about the creation of the show.
Most Popular Categories. I knew this would probably be way different than that, and it was. It had some beautiful dancing. Jean Butler was a lot more sensual in this then she was in Riverdance, probably because she gets along with Colin Dunne so well.
I really did like parts of it, and the story itself. However, I thought the set and costumes were very plain and I feel that while Colin is a talented dancer, I prefer the showman in Flatley. Always have, always will. I know that my complaints are probably purposeful, to be more inLine with traditional irish dance. Just not my preference. Still is worth a watch because the dancing is good and the chemistry between Butler and Dunne is beautiful. One person found this helpful.
I actually rented this before buying it and it looks like this will be added to my shopping cart real soon because this DVD is great. The show itself is just really good. The story is your basic love triangle fairy tale where the the betrothed lady, Grania, goes for the "other man" Diarmiud.
So we see where they meet and the consequences of their actions especially after the hubby, Finn McCool finds out. Major bonus points to the editors who titled each segment making the story a cinch to understand. They really utilize the form to tell the story with dynamic and innovative performances that still embody traditional Irish dance values. Along with sensational music and beautiful costumes this is a must have. The most impressive aspect of this DVD is the behind the scenes documentary on the process of bringing "Dangerous Ground" to the stage.
It was so eye-opening to see what it takes to bring these seemingly simplistic shows to life. And hearing input from the dancers, especially Colin and Jean, added more depth to the actual show because I had a sense of what they felt before the curtain raised on opening night. I would actually recommend watching the doc. I truly hope that Dunne and Butler continue to make more "ground" breaking shows such as this one. Definitely a must have for dance and theatre lovers.
As a former Riverdance nut, I am amazed that I actually missed this! As it is, that incredibly lucky discovery came from a most unlikely source, but I feel so lucky that I found it. I've seen both Colin Dunne and Michael Flatley in person, and my feelings remain unchanged. I missed a live performance by the incredibly beautiful Jean Butler. Just to see these beautiful dancers together is alone worth the price of the DVD.
They chose an ancient Irish myth as their vehicle, and they could have gone in 2 directions. Either overdo it, or try to keep their production as spare as possible the more the show the myth. Fortunately, unlike Flatley's garish productions, they chose the latter. Also, fortunately, they DID chose to stretch the envelope of traditional Irish dancing, but in a very valid way and totally in context.
The setting and the costumes do take some getting used to, but used to them I did get Dancing on Dangerous Ground. I've adored Riverdance, most particularly when both Butler and Dunn were the leads, but watching my beloved VHS of their New York show, strangely Riverdance looked stiff, albeit still beautiful, by comparison.
It will be a long time before any make us forget THEM! This is such a good program I had to see when this was done and darn? I am such a fan of Celtic dance I just was shocked I missed such a great show. It is a great history from the past and i just love the dance and the way Trey preform!
Not to dorget is the intencity in the whole history! I bought the movie expecting a mediocre performance. What I ended up with was a great dance show from Colin and Jean. When it started, I half expected the show to be a cheap rip-off of Riverdance, but it's quite original in what it does. A tiny bit cheesy at times, but what dance show isn't?
The beginning was a little bit of a Riverdance rip-off, but the rest made up for the beginning. The steps are intricate and compleltey original. DODG is a show to fall in love with over and over again. See all reviews. Top reviews from other countries. This is a dance performance based on an Irish myth.
This may be too contemporary for lovers of Riverdance and Lord of the Dance. However, the dancing is firmly anchored in the Irish dancing tradition as well as Irish myth. Those familiar with the story will enjoy it the most. Others should familiarise themselves with the story it get the most out of the performance. The stage backdrops are few but effective, the stage is bare, the lighting focused and the costumes simple and the dancing is very good, particularly in groups.
The dance is divided into scenes, called chapters. The chapter titles give an overview of the story 1. She agrees to an arranged marriage to the powerful, but aging, Finn McCool. However, she meets and falls in love with the more age-appropriate Diarmuid and they flee, pursued by Finn McCool and his warriors.
See The Early Finn Cycle. Report abuse. This is definitely my favourite Irish dance show, although as someone who studied medieval Irish literature, I'm probably biased because it's based on a medieval Irish story. But the dancing is technically amazing, and the emotions are intense. Can't believe the early reviewers said there was no chemistry, because it's dripping with it.
Admittedly, the costuming is I especially love how egalitarian the choreography is from a gender perspective -- Jean Butler in hard shoes is a force to be reckoned with. A beautiful Irish dance show with subtitles in various languages. From an old Irish love legend. A long "making-of" about one hour , with subtitles, is very, very interesting and sincere.
