Lïnger

Performed by Breandán de Gallaí and Nick O’Connell

Powerful and tender, two dancers at opposite ends of their dancing career share a poignant duet through contemporary Irish dance. Lïnger, performed by ex-Riverdance principal Breandán de Gallaí and Nick O’Connell, is an immersive theatrical experience about sexuality, ageing and identity, told through a rich tapestry of photography, film, music, and movement.

This critically acclaimed work is a ground-breaking theatrical experience which invites you to reflect on the passage of time, and who we are at various stages of our lives.

Throughout this biographical work are moments of liminality – “being neither here nor there” (Heaney 1996): that deliberate restraint; permanently on the cusp; as we indulgently linger in its vastness. Lïnger is a test of endurance as desire soars but climax is avoided.
Ériu’s work is a 21st century reimagining of Irish dance, exploring the poetic potential of the genre and examining topics rarely dealt with through traditional dance.

Show is 60 minutes in duration and there will be a post-show discussion with members of the Company.

I, Malvolio

Age 11+ │ Duration 70 mins

Multi-award-winning playwright and performer Tim Crouch re-imagines Twelfth Night in this, his brilliant, hilarious one-man show.

In a charged, unsettling rant, Malvolio – a man ‘notoriously wronged’ – draws us into the madness of Shakespeare's play and forces us to confront our own cruelty.  I, Malvolio is Twelfth Night told from the loser’s perspective. It’s a show for anyone who has ever been told off, called a name, or fallen in love with the wrong person.

…a downright joyous celebration of theatre.’ The Guardian * * * * *

Darol Anger and Republic of Strings (U.S.A.)

presented by Music Network

  • Darol Anger, 5 string fiddle
  • Tristan Clarridge, cello, fiddle
  • Emy Phelps, guitar, voice
  • John Mailander, octave mandolin, fiddle

With his unique genre-bending blend of bluegrass, jazz, folk and classical styles, Grammy-nominated fiddler Darol Anger is a master of the unexpected, darting from Swedish polkas to Brazilian choro before segueing seamlessly into a soul classic – all delivered with the rollicking abandon of a hootenanny.  Anger developed his signature sound working alongside great improvisers such as Stéphane Grappelli, Martin Hayes, Jerry Douglas and Béla Fleck, and over the past 40 years has produced an arrayof critically-acclaimed albums, including 17 with the legendary Turtle Island String Quartet alone.

For this journey into uncharted musical waters, he is aided and abetted by a trio of nimble-fingered pioneers. Long-time collaborator and 5-time Grand National Fiddle Champion Tristan Clarridge is co-founder of the chamber-grass group The Bee Eaters. Acclaimed multi-instrumentalist John Mailander has performed with such renowned artists as the Alison Brown Quartet, Victor Wooten and Steve Martin, while the riveting vocal sound of Emy Phelps has graced the albums of a long line of folk stalwarts including Patrick Brayer, Chris Darrow, Norma Tanega and Brian Ransom's Ceramic Ensemble.
