Tuesday Nov 8th – Wednesday 9th
To coincide with the 10th anniversary of the novel by Jamie O’Neill, Earthfall revive their award-winning production with a UK tour.
Staged entirely in water, and set against the backdrop of the Easter Rising in Ireland, this tender and visually beautiful production previously toured to sell-out audiences in Wales, England, Scotland, Ireland and mainland Europe.
Set in Ireland in 1916, the work juxtaposes the developing love affair between two young men with political turmoil in Ireland and the slaughter on the Western Front – contrasting the dream of national liberation and the search for personal freedom. The production is staged in a slowly filling lake in front of a waterfall, with episodes from the book woven together through a fusion of extreme physicality, original live music and film.
