About This Artist

Ruairí Ó’Donnabháin is a choreographer from Co. Cork, Ireland. He lives and works on a small island; Oileán Chléire, an hour off the Irish mainland researching the effect of his native language and dances in the body.

 

About This Project

In 2017 Mica Sigourney and Ruairí Ó’Donnabháin 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.
