Summer Tour of Unearth | 2nd-14th July 2022
A visually stunning performance weaving dance and narrative in a journey of gentle support and empowerment, finding joy and strength in our differences, and power in our collective connection to earth.
Created in the context of the current health and environmental crisis, Unearth is an invitation to find strength in connection, both with each other, and with the land that holds us. Blending visceral imagery and dance with narrative and music, stories of support are interwoven with structures that both restrict and liberate. At times balancing on the edge of stability and physical threat, these structures are collectively created, navigated and eventually dismantled.
Exquisitely lit, and with a soundscape that is richly textured with storytelling from the ensemble and devised music from UK based Haylett, this performance invites the audience into an intimate world that ultimately resonates with, and celebrates the positive power of union and collaboration.
Bringing together an intergenerational ensemble, including Irish and international performers with ages ranging from 12-50 years, artistic director Wilson has created a unique ensemble for Unearth. The result of a yearlong online collaborative development process, the ensemble expresses meaningful connections across ages and backgrounds, as well as deep agency within the work. Unearth is an uplifting and timely new performance that embraces diverse voices and perspectives and reflects on our inherent connection to earth.
