Denying the past and dislocating ourselves from the land has left the Irish empty.
“Tilling The Tomb” is a ghostly performance set between the worlds of the living and
the dead. It deals with the importance of identity and belonging, whilst evoking
Irish archetypes. In a time of emigration and shifting values it is vital to rediscover
who we are as a people. The theatrics have a ritualistic quality woven with song,
dance and poetry to awaken your ancestry.
