"499km of border to walk - because we don't know how else to respond to what is happening?"

A performance in three language sets: Gaeilge, English and Dance.

Two Irishmen walk into a theatre: one from America and one from Ireland.
Two men walk Irishly into an amharclann.
Two Irishmen walk the border between the Republic and The North, then into a theatre.

This duet traces a border, looking for midlands, mid folks and inbetweeners. It describes the familial lineages of an Irish emigrant and an Irish native, both queer; both with aspirations to discover or uncover a future by squinting at the past.

Coming home. Leaving. Coming and going.

 

“499 km de theorainn chun siúl - níl a fhios againn cé chomh eile a freagra a thabhairt ar cad atá ag tarlú.”
