Óró.. was a live theatrical experience, fusing contemporary dance, theatre, music, poetry and visual art to tell a story about language, identity and survival.
Óró.. interrogated how we must re-imagine our society post Covid-19 to ensure our continued existence on this planet, not just physically and economically, but also culturally.
By coming together and producing a shared response to this worldwide crisis in six European minority languages, Óró.. demonstrates the importance of diversity in all spheres of life and the power of collaboration as these wonderful artists combine their talent and experience with that of their European partners to create a work that resonates powerfully, personally and universally.
Óró.. was performed for a limited run from 21 – 26 September 2020 in a large factory space in An Cheathrú Rua in the Connemara Gaeltacht culminating on the European day of languages. The scale of the performance space enables us to adhere comfortably to social distancing guidelines.
