Event Description

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.

Now to coincide with the 10th anniversary of the novel by Jamie O’Neill, Earthfall revive their award-winning production, following the success of last autumns sell-out tour.

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.

“Sometimes everything comes together: performance, design, music and concept. Earthfall's 'At Swim Two Boys' is just such an instance.”

Venue (2011)            

 

“ Violence, tenderness, passion and humour collide in this super, charged performance”
