Leide Beag is a newly-devised choral performance inspired by the Aistriú texts and composed by Ian Wilson, choreographed by Siobhán Ní Dhuinnín, directed by Robbie Blake and performed by members of Tonnta and the One World Voice Choir.

This vocal work emerges from a year-long engagement with these celebrated Irish language texts exploring the theme of migration, alongside a collaborative process with members of the One World Voice Choir, based in the Croí na Gaillimhe migrant support centre. Leide Beag uses the voice with movement to create a patchwork of music and song exploring modern migration. The performance includes traditional songs and new compositions, resulting in a rich multicultural and multilingual weave.
