Berlin-based Irish choreographer Marguerite Donlon’s World Premiere The Last Lifeboat tells the true story of her grand-aunt, Kate Gilnagh, who survived the Titanic sinking. Featuring a recording of Gilnagh’s firsthand account interwoven with original music by Dirk Haubrich, The Last Lifeboat is part of a larger narrative about emigration and the will to live. Donlon is known for creating characters that are “living, breathing human being[s]” (Huffington Post), and has premiered works on Stuttgart Ballet, Berlin Ballet, and Bolshoi Ballet.
