Ériu’s unique production of Salomé is a dance and Irish language interpretation of Oscar Wilde’s classic. Visually compelling, the show is a commentary on the brutality of evil and on the vulnerability of the human condition. Through the voice, body, and music, which are seamlessly united, each inciting and arousing the other, de Gallaí has created a dance work that is at once beautiful and terrifying. Leagan Gaeilge agus gluaiseachta atá sa léiriú úrnua seo de shárdhráma Oscar Wilde, Salómae. Léiriú éachtach agus físiúil é ina n–úsáidtear téamaí atá go fós ábhartha sa lá atá inniu ann chun brúidiúlacht an olcais a phlé agus an leochaileacht dhaonna a chur i láthair.

Cleft

written by Fergal McElherron directed by Lynne Parker cast Simone Kirby and Penny Layden

‘Everything meets there. Anord. Everything crashes there; the waves crash into the land, the sky crashes into the sea, the wind crashes against your body.’ Twin sisters Fea and Caireen, living on a harsh, remote island, are raising a boy together. Abandoned by their mother at a young age and left in their teens to fend for themselves by their troubled father, the women have created their own emotional ecosystem. While Caireen embraces motherhood Fea struggles as she watches the boy grow in the likeness of his father whose body lies buried beneath the hawthorn tree. Cleft — a visceral story of one family’s unrelenting will to survive — and ultimately to make choices based on instinct. The Creative Team also includes Zia Bergin–Holly and Carl Kennedy.
