"The Hero Light"
FRIDAY 27 March 2015
*EARLY START at 7:30pm*
A brand new performance of Irish epic, brimming with exuberant humour and vitality. The story of Briccriu's Feast - filled with heroes, kings and battles for power - romps wildly through the battle strewn landscape of ancient Ireland. But beyond the light of the feast, with its surreal chaos and ale-soaked wit, awaits the gritty widescreen action of Irish mythology’s great epic – the Cattle Raid of Cooley. Balancing comedy, tragedy, and raw beauty, Dominic Kelly brings all of this and more to full bloodied life through sharp storytelling, vivid imagery and humour.
The hunger for narrative is a basic human instinct. Stories help us make sense of the world and give structure and order to our everyday lives. They tell us what is important, what is not and give us a way to connect people's individual experiences to those of others. They help us identify with universal truths. Stories are a way we put a human face on the world, which is something we have always needed and valued. Some of our most profound decisions are made emotionally, not rationally. Stories tap into emotions better than anything else.
