Phaedrus by Jonathan Walsh

Jonathan’s piece will explore the concepts of grief and masculinity.

It's that moment when your life goes from fine and dandy to a gut-wrenching hard stop. The slow fall of grief that follows. The laughs, the tears, the self-reflection. The crash of reality and death and the journey back to hope and the joy of living. It's about expressing these things without fear. Expression not as a sign of weakness but as a show of strength. It's about asking for help and accepting change.

The ideas of masculinity change over time, people change, the world changes.

We must learn to change with it and help create a better world.

We are seen, what we do, how we do it. We are watched, there are expectations, deep-seated beliefs.

If I don’t let go and take charge of my change, the world will change and charge me.

Ham Sandwhiches and Discipline by NAF Dance

A theatrical contemporary dance duet about the world of the GAA, traditional Irish sports and all its raw theatricality. 30 jerseys drying on the line, muddy stud boots, vexed commentators, sideline screaming and ritualistic trips to matches. Our understanding of what it means to be Irish is ever changing through the global lens so how we connect with the country is ever shifting. The GAA highlights this idea of tradition and change together encapsulated in a beacon of Irish history. Culminating in a hive of Irishness injected with camp and comedy.
