“Carr’s immensely likable and skillful dancers move with a space-gobbling buoyancy and openness that looks as if they might take flight”
—Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times

“ModERIN is a combination of the best of both traditions . . .To watch these performances is to see Irish dance in a whole new way. . .a glorious melange of sound and movement that’s breathtaking”
