Twinsome Minds: Recovering 1916 in Images and Stories

Thu 09 Jun
8:00pm to 9:30pm

Twinsome Minds is a multimedia performance by Professor Richard Kearney in collaboration with Associate Professor of Fine Arts Sheila Gallagher. Through an interplay of storytelling, animation, music and poetry, Twinsome Minds re-imagines a series of micro-narratives surrounding 1916 in Dublin and the battlefields of Belgium. These stories and images of eclipsed history concentrate on ‘twinned’ pairs – family members, neighbours, school friends, lovers – who ended up on opposite sides during this time of great upheaval in British-Irish relations.

Commissioned by the Abbey Theatre, Twinsome Minds features original music composed and performed by Dana Lyn.
