In 2017 Mica Sigourney and Ruairí Donovan walked alongside the 303 mile disputed border between The Republic and The North of Ireland.

Two Irishmen walk into a theatre: one from America and one from Éire.

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 in-betweeners. It describes the familial lineages of an Irish emigrant and an Irish native, both aerach; both with aspirations to discover or uncover a future by squinting at the past.

mic tíre is a performance in three language sets: Gaeilge, English and Dance.

Ag teacht abhaile. 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.”

Eipic Miotaseolaíoch Aerach Éireannach i dtrí chuid; ar dtús an tsiúlóid, den dara an dán agus sa triú dísréad le cadhc.

Cailleann agus faigheann an fheidhmíocht seo i gcleachtais deabhóideach le oilithrigh, laochra agus neasghaolta Bandia.
