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.

The theme this year: Between the Sun and the Moon is an ode to Muslim sciences that once thrived here, in particular, […]
Before I came to CounterPulse, I had a dream job that can be roughly defined by this checklist: A supportive space for experimental, anti-institutional art. A critically thinking and politically engaged community. A platform that is both accessible and uplifting of marginalized voices. It feels surreal that I had found a place like CounterPulse […]
People! This is Jesse Hewit. Ya’ll, I’m not gonna beat around the bush: 2019 has been a doozy. It felt like the world was extra on fire. As I reflect on the big and fast and difficult swirl of the past year, I think of just how much I needed CounterPulse. I needed pulsating, breathy, sharp art. I […]

I sought movers who could […]
