The Keening Wake

October 30 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm UTC+0

£5 – £7.5

‘The Keening Wake’ is a devised piece, a ‘taisbeanadh beò’ in which we search for the voices of the ‘mnathan-tuirim’ or keening women of Scotland and Ireland. Calling upon a rich mix of Scottish and Irish Gaelic, Doric, Georgian and Basque influences, artist-researchers Déirdre Ní Mhathúna, Nerea Bello and Madge Bray take a few creative leaps – in performance also with Gaelic activist Morag McDonald – while fully respecting existing poetry and lore, in their quest to rediscover the Caoineadh.
The piece, which is in English and Gaelic, came to life through The Keening Wake Research Project by The Way of the Village, with support from HLF and Tasgadh Traditional Arts Fund.

£7.50/6/5
